American Legion Post: Don't Use Military Image to Push "YES" on Prop 2
Updated: Nov 5, 2022
Supporters of Proposal 2, which is the so-called voting 'rights' amendment to the MI constitution, claim that if the proposal passes, it will "help military and overseas voters make their voice heard at the ballot box."
To that end, advocates for a "YES" vote have been distributing mailers to households across Michigan which feature military images. No doubt confusing voters.
The Ernest Peterson Post, of Boyne City, thinks this is inappropriate advocacy and advertising. Read the letter (pictured) the post's members passed last night.
And here's information about the part of the Hatch Act which the letter references.
Note: ERG leadership fully supports a NO vote on Proposal 2.
