Emptywheel » MI Republicans Admit to Illegal Foreclosure Scheme, “Surrender” to Democrats


The MDP statement on the settlement says:
"An agreement announced today by Obama for America, the Republican National Committee, the Democratic National Committee, the Michigan Republican Party, the Michigan Democratic Party, the Macomb County Republican Party, the Macomb County Democratic Party, and plaintiffs Duane Maletski, Sharon Lopez, and Frances M. Zick protects the voting rights of foreclosure victims. The settlement acknowledges the existence of an illegal scheme by the Republicans to use mortgage foreclosure lists to deny foreclosure victims their right to vote. This settlement has the force of law behind it and ensures that Republicans cannot disenfranchise families facing foreclosure. [my emphasis]"

Sorry but I have a little higher standards then taking someones word for it, especially when "settlement" is used. What exactly was illegal? What was the settlement? If Democrats caused Republicans to "surrender" then why the joint release? And finally, why are none of the court documents signes? mmmm
