Republicans Reject 220,000 Signatures to Repeal Emergency Manager Law, Claim Font is Wrong

Video is of a group of Michigan Citizens in discussion and briefing in regards to Michigan's Emergency Manager Act repeal petition controversy over the font size used on the petition. More than 220,000 signatures were collected to put the matter on the Nov. ballot. The state requirement to repeal the law is 161,305. 

The Republican controlled Michigan Board of Canvassers rejected the valid signatures based on claims the font size used on part of the petition was wrong. They state that "people may not have known what they were signing because the writing wasn't big enough". This despite independent experts have certified it is the correct 14 point bold face font as required by law.
