Dems target Young’s environmental record in MSC campaign

Michigan Supreme Court Justice Robert P. Young Jr., up for re-election to the high court this fall, favors oil and gas companies over the environment, a Michigan Democratic Party video suggests.

“Misinformation and outright lies,” was the Young campaign’s immediate response, according to an Associated Press report.

In a press statement accompanying the video’s release yesterday, party chair Mark Brewer said:

Bob Young is nothing more than a puppet for the oil and gas industry.

His disastrous rulings throughout his career show his priorities lie with Big Oil, not with Michigan and its residents. We need a Supreme Court Justice who will stand up to Big Oil and protect Michigan and that’s not Bob Young.

In her AP article, Kathy Barks Hoffman does a good job of evaluating the Democrats’ case-law-based arguments against Young.
