Lang Supports Voter Purges, Opposes Nonpartisan Redistricting and Supports Extreme, Right-Wing Politicians
Lang wants to use the SOS office for GOP partisan advantage.
Lang has repeatedly praised Republican-led voters purges in 2016.
Lang said without GOP-led voter purges that kicked legitimate voters off the rolls, “we wouldn’t have President Trump today as our great president, nor would we be a red state.”
lang endorsed Vice President Pence's Voter Suppression commission, which was disbanded after finding no evidence of voter fraud in the 2016 election.
Lang wants to Make it harder for people to vote.
Lang wants to help the GOP keep the advantage in redistricting and opposes nonpartisan redistricting efforts.
Lang has embraced Extreme Republicans like President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence in her campaign.
She has also embraced the Tea Party and extremists like Dinesh D’Souza and “Trucker” Randy Bishop, who were both convicted of felonies.
D’Souza served time for his campaign finance crimes and was later pardoned by trump. The Secretary of State oversees campaign finance laws.
A DeVOS DRONE
Betsy Devos and her billionaire family have been lang's biggest supporters, as she shares their extremist education agenda
It’s no secret that Lang was handpicked as the GOP Secretary of State nominee by right-wing billionaire Betsy DeVos and her family.
The DeVos family has given Lang over $40,000 for her SOS campaign so far.
Six DeVoses maxed out to Lang, including DeVos’ husband, Dick.
DeVos’ extremist education agenda dovetails with Lang’s role on the boards of the education achievement authority and eastern michigan university, which helped expand charter schools in Michigan with little oversight.
Lang’s loyalty lies with the hyper-partisan DeVoses first, which impedes her ability to be a fair arbiter of elections. She will certainly oppose strong transparency laws and campaign finance reform.

The EAA was shut down after there were more than 12 convictions in a federal corruption probe into its finances.
EASTERN MICHIGAN UNIVERSITY (EMU)
EMU raised tuition every year and twice busted the state tuition cap.
EMU has had many protests and been one of Michigan’s most troubled universities.
EMU was a partner in the EAA. Lang had a huge conflict of interest serving on both boards.
The EMU Faculty Senate said Lang violated the ethics policy because of her conflict of interest.
