Michigan student highlights Hall's violent past and his nay votes on domestic violence gun legislation to underscore concerns that he is not fit to serve Michiganders
LANSING - In case you missed it, yesterday, MAGA Matt Hall was once again blasted for his past and ability to lead, this time in an op-ed by the president of the Michigan State University chapter of the National Organization for Women's Campus Action Network. In her op-ed, Raegan Wellman explains how, from her perspective as a young Michigander closely following her state legislature, she simply does not trust Hall and his ability to make impartial decisions around critical and sensitive legislation concerning domestic violence and assault. As we already saw in this past legislative session, MAGA Matt voted against groundbreaking and common sense legislation championed by Dems to keep guns out of the hands of domestic abusers and make Michiganders safer.
With his history of threatening behavior coupled with his radical votes to continue to allow domestic abusers access to guns, Raegan Wellman says it begs the question of whether MAGA Matt Hall should be allowed to represent Michiganders at all. With 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men experiencing abuse in their lifetime, how can someone who has threatened violence deserve to sit in the Michigan Legislature?
