Michigan: Detroit Mayor facing recall effort

Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan is facing a recall effort from Robert Davis and Brenda Hill, two "government agitators" over claims that the city gave federal grant money to a nonprofit aiming to fight preterm birth. The head of the nonprofit (Make Your Date) is an associate dean at Wayne State University School of Medicine and has close personal tied to Duggan.

Davis previously tried to get a recall going against Duggan in 2016, though he collected no signatures. He claims to have $50,000 pledged to this effort.

Update: The Election Commission has approved the petitions.
