Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.

The divisiveness of the Michigan Republican Party has been one of the biggest conversations as we head into election season, and this week our readers were interested in the 150 GOP members who are choosing to support Democrat Gov. Whitmer for reelection instead of her Republican challenger Tudor Dixon.

A Detroit cop was also suspended from her duties after it was discovered that her off-duty activities included posting porn on OnlyFans. Our readers were interested in what a local activist had to say, and why they called the suspension sexist.
