“Endorsement: In Democratic primary for Oakland County prosecutor, Karen McDonald is best choice.”

The primary is August 4. The Detroit Free Press published an endorsement of candidate Karen McDonald for the following strong and defensible reasons:


Before the Free Press editorial staff continues to pat itself on the back for its previous endorsements of current prosecutor Jessica Cooper, and effuses any more gratitude for her “ethical stewardship,” someone there ought to read The Snow Killings: Inside the Oakland County Child Killer Investigation, which released last week.

The Snow Killings.

Ethical? How about cynical.

If you live in Oakland County vote Karen McDonald for prosecutor on August 4. You have time to read Marney Keenan’s book before then–and you should.

The editorial notes that L. Brooks Patterson clung to power until the bitter end and that his “patrons and rivals indulged him to the end.” How sickening. Clean house in Oakland County. Rise above the sorry past of Amity–I mean, Oakland County.
