Scott Walker is famous for a reason. But what's happened in Michigan is the most radical thing Republicans have done anywhere in the country. They have eliminated democracy. They have eliminated voting rights at the local level in their state. They have tried to eliminate Democrats' voting rights in the state legislature.|
