Tweets so offensive we can't even quote them.

Racist epithets.

Rape jokes.

Referring to women with offensive, obscene and inappropriate terminology.

Anthony Eid, one of the 13 unelected members of the state’s Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission currently redrawing Michigan’s legislative maps, was exposed this week after Gongwer news service reported years’ worth of offensive, racist and misogynistic tweets.

Gongwer News Service Michigan reported:
“Other of Mr. Eid's posts made offensive references to women. One called women he encountered in a gas station "h*es" and another referred to "junior sl*ts" he supposedly encountered at a 7-Eleven convenience store. Several more included quotations invoking supposed jokes about both male and female genitalia.”
 
Eid was tapped by Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson to serve on the Commission after he signed an affidavit claiming to be politically “Independent.”
 
That’s another problem for Eid, after his social media history exposed him as a vocal far-left Democrat who has long supported radical Democrats like Bernie Sanders.
 
Now national news reports about Eid’s not-so-secret partisanship are calling into question Eid’s position on the Commission and creating a huge new integrity problem for the entire redistricting process.
 
The not-so-secret Democrat has been a leading voice pushing the Commission to gerrymander maps to favor the Democratic Party.
 
As an “independent,” his presence on the Commission is now putting a hyper-liberal thumb on the scales that’ll impact every voter in the state.
 
We need you to take two minutes and submit a public comment to the redistricting commission urging them to produce fair maps - not partisan, left-wing maps drawn by Bernie Bros.

Washington Free Beacon: ‘Independent’ Michigan Redistricting Commissioner Actually a Bernie Bro

A Bernie Sanders-backing 29-year-old won a coveted position to redraw Michigan's political districts as part of a self-described "independent" bloc of redistricting commissioners that could redefine the state's electoral landscape for the next decade.
More than 18 months into the Covid-19 pandemic, New York and Michigan are stonewalling attempts to shine light on the actions of these leaders, leaving the public in both states in the dark and making accountability much harder.
Many Kent county parents are hopping mad over their county health department’s diktat that children must wear face masks in school. Officials responded by scheduling a public meeting in a venue big enough to accommodate the large crowd expected. The crowd came, but not county health officer Adam London, who addressed the agitated parents using a remote video connection.
Data released Tuesday by the Michigan Department of Education provides the first snapshot of educational progress through standardized tests in two years. The results show the steep climb Michigan has ahead to recover from pandemic-induced learning loss and years of low performances on tests in math, reading, social studies and science.
A leading open government advocate called the Whitmer memo “problematic,” however, because the review could further slow public records requests. And a conservative activist called Whitmer hypocritical given her 2018 campaign promises to boost transparency in her office.
