What about when his opponents air the video of Kevin Green throwing up on himself in a drunken stupor? I think he is finished politically after the next election. He is not a bad person, it's just reality, though, that he's given ammunition to his opponents with his behavior.
I disagree, there's too many powerful people backing him. What you say would have happened years ago, in fact he probably would have been stripped of his position because an argument would ensued by a lawyer that the arrest was kept quiet and people voting did not have a realistic clue about his lifestyle to vote for the kind of person they thought they were voting for..But that would have been years ago, we live in a different world nowadays that only seems fair to the rich and powerful.

Anyone else notice that before Land we took a written test for our driver's license?.
That was before all the school kids started failing in school, plus the Latinos arriving from Mexico. Many of them cannot understand, and do you think we need to keep them away from driving to jobs they have, jobs that we would have had if the playing field was level?

Doesn't make sense then that the Republican Land would relax or eliminate the written test.

Ms Land has done a great job as Secretary of State. The SOS has balanced it's budget. More than anyone can for the other states. At least Michigan won't "Be blown away" as with our so called present Gov. A change we can handle in these hard times.

I have known Terri for over 30 years. While I dont always agree with her politically, I know she is a fair honest hard working person. When I asked her why anyone would want the job of governor (when some extremely rich republican was running) she said because they feel they can make a difference in our state. I believe she would be a great candidate for Governor. When I have been in a SOS office lately I have been very impressed with their efficiency. She's got my vote (and I voted for Obama)!

Once the online renewals are set, it's just sit back. Very hard to compare the online renewal situation and the costs of running the physical SOS offices.
