This week our readers were most interested in a far-right conservative who spewed controversial and hateful statements, like saying women who are raped should “lie back and enjoy it,”  and lost the election for state House of Representatives.

Our readers were also interested in a Detroit man who was arrested after operating a marijuana vending machine outside his Westside home.

A sighting of an otter in the Detroit river also captivated our readers interest this week.
