LANSING, Mich. – Michigan Freedom Fund Executive Director Tori Sachs provided the following statement today, following a ruling by the Michigan Supreme Court upholding the state’s Constitution and requiring the so-called Independent Redistricting Committee to publicly release legal memos and recordings of an illegally secret session held in late-October:
“The Redistricting Commission broke the law to hide its work from Michigan voters. The Supreme Court declared today that commissioners won’t get away with it. The first step towards restoring the integrity of the map-drawing process is for Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson or Chair Rebecca Szetela to immediately release the memos and secret recordings they tried to hide from the public.
“There must be consequences for violating the law. Accountability won’t happen until the Commission fires and replaces the attorneys who told them to illegally hide their work from the public.”
