Michigan Democratic Party Calls for Investigation into Senator Mike ‘Militia’ Shirkey

The Michigan Democratic Party released the following statement on behalf of Chair Lavora Barnes.

“It has become increasingly clear that there needs to be a full investigation into Senator Mike Shirkey’s dealings with Michigan Militia groups.  He has spoken at their rallies.  He has defended their actions. And most recently it has come to light that he met with the leaders of three Michigan-based militia groups to help them with their messaging. He has, time and time again, betrayed the trust of the people that he is elected to serve. His sympathetic approach to working with right-wing armed militia groups is disturbing and dangerous and must come to an end.”
