    Wow I wonder how she is going to feel if every gay or gay friendly person in the Detroit metro area decides to stop spending their money at The Somerset Collection?

    The good people of Troy should start the recall petition now unless the Mayor has the decency to step down.

    Something tells me that any attempt to criticize her views, or boycott anything commercial attached to her, or a campaign to defeat her re-election will be met with cries of religious intolerance.

    Theres already lots of activity on Somerset's Facebook wall boycotting any sales there if she doesnt step down.

    Not really Somersets fault however...but its one way people can get a point across.

    Not to mention....all the gay people that work there and shop there.

    First of all, she wasn't elected in the first place; she was appointed by the Governor. I doubt any "recall" would work under those circumstances. The situation in Michigan is just awful these days.

    She "Apologized" but it doesn't fix it.

    I totally support any boycotting, public persona hits she takes, etc...

    But, is this really any worse if she said something other than gay?

    She did'nt apologize she went on to say that lot of people had told her they would move to Troy because of what she said. Thought the mayor was supposed to increase revenues for their cities nor drive them away.

    This is where I got my information.
    Michigan mayor apologizes for anti-gay Facebook post - CNN

    Where did you see information that she did not apologize, and the quote of more people moving to the area because of it?

    Where did you read that she was appointed?


    Here's more bad news. Voters can't get her out because of the Slur on Facebook as it was prior to her taking the seat.

    Troy Attorneys Explain Recall Process for Troy Mayor Janice Daniels - Troy, MI Patch

    Political Spin:
    She was a real estate agent, and was basically let go after she posted the Facebook Comment.
    I would guess a lawsuit of slander was threatened and the story changed to a more "Positive note"

    Well based on the video where she's talking, she did apologize.
    Not sure about the JoeMyGod blog, as I couldnt find anything on there.
