Dems Should Call on Elissa Slotkin to get an Eligibility Review

LANSING, Mich., February 6, 2018 – Michigan Republican Party Deputy Chief of Staff Sarah Anderson called on the Michigan Democratic Party to ask Elissa Slotkin to get an eligibility review for her congressional run. It was discovered that Slotkin took her homestead deduction in September 2017 on the only home she owns—a residence in Washington DC that she purchased in 2007 and still owns. Slotkin took the DC homestead deduction despite registering to vote in Michigan in May 2017. Slotkin was required to inform DC in June 2017 about her Michigan registration but ignored it to take advantage of DC residency. “If Democrats are requiring Abdul El-Sayed to get an eligibility review for declaring 2 primary residences, they should ask Elissa Slotkin to get an eligibility review for pretending to have 2 primary residences,” said Anderson. “Slotkin took the DC homestead deduction on the DC home she owns. She did not disclose the DC home on her personal financial disclosure. Why is Elissa Slotkin hiding her DC home? It’s shady behavior like that which will make Michigan voters question the integrity of DC insider Elissa Sloktin.” According to DC Office of Tax and Revenue records, Slotkin bought her DC home in 2007 and took her homestead deduction in DC throughout 2017. DC law requires the homeowner to be a current DC resident to qualify for the homestead deduction. Elissa Slotkin still owns her DC home but did not disclose it on her personal financial disclosure.

Call Senator Stabenow and demand that the federal government get back to work

Friend, In the very early hours of this morning, Senator Stabenow chose to put her party over her state and voted to shut down the federal government. This is unacceptable. More than 82,000 Michigan children lost their healthcare when Senator Debbie Stabenow refused to support a compromise spending bill which would have kept the federal government open. In addition to keeping the government operating, the bill included a six-year extension to the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) which provides healthcare for children whose families make less than double the federal poverty level. The procedural vote on the bill received a majority in the U.S. Senate, but Democrats, including Senator Stabenow, chose party politics and obstruction over people and the bill did not reach the 60 votes needed to go to a final vote. Call Senator Stabenow at (202) 224-4822 (DC Office), or (517) 203-1760 (Lansing) and demand that she puts Michigan first, and that the federal government gets back to work. More >
