    From the Detroit Free Press:

    "State House and Senate office buildings will all be closed Monday during the meeting of the Electoral College due to security concerns, an official said Monday.

    "The Capitol will also be closed to the public, as was announced earlier.

    "Amber McCann, a spokeswoman for Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey, R-Clarklake, said the Senate closed its facilities for Monday "based on recommendations from law enforcement."

    "The decision was not made because of anticipated protests, but based on credible threats of violence," McCann said late Sunday."

    It goes on to say, "There have been unconfirmed reports of threats against Michigan delegates to the Electoral College, who are expected to cast their votes for Democratic President-elect Joe Biden at 2 p.m. Monday, from the Senate chamber."

    It is worth noting, it was reported a couple of days ago that the Electors in Michigan would have a police escort as they go to the capitol, due to threats.

    What a sad state of affairs..

    Seriously, perhaps if they arrested some of the instigators we would not have these problems.

    As the Department of Homeland Security has noted, right wing domestic terrorism is one of our country's greatest threats.

    That's weird. They are usually protected by the Secret Service. I wonder why the downgrade.

    We have a very active militia (read: crazy guys with lots of guns) scene here in Michigan.
