Michigan: Williamston School Board recall thrown out by judge
A judge has tossed out a recall effort against Board President Greg Talberg and members Nancy Deal, Sarah Relanger and Christopher Lewis over their vote extending non-discrimination protection to transgender students. The election commission had previously accepted the recall language 2-1, but the judge (in another county -- numerous judges recused themselves) ruled that the language of the petition was designed to mislead or confuse. It did take the petitioner four attempts to have the language of his petition approved by the election commission. No word on an appeal or another attempt.
