Flint mayoral candidate Don Pfeiffer demands equal time to react to radio show comments by County Clerk John Gleason
FLINT (CCN) — Flint mayoral candidate Don Pfeiffer has notified The Morning Gazette Radio Show that he "demands equal time" to react to comments aired by Genesee County Clerk / Register of Deeds John Gleason during a Friday morning program on CCN Radio.
Gleason called Pfeiffer a "liar" for comments aired during Wednesday newscasts on WEYI NBC TV 25 and WSMH Fox 66 TV after The Morning Gazette Radio reported during its Wednesday morning program that Gleason contends Pfeiffer can't be on the ballot because of fines owed to his office. Gleason says campaign finance laws prohibit any candidate from running if fines are owed and said, "State law requires an affidavit be filed to declare under oath that no fines are owed. Mr. Pfeiffer knows he owes fines because he has received numerous letters about it from my office and there has been media stories about it." READ MORE
