   FLINT (CCN) — A report last week by The Morning Gazette Radio Show about a recall effort being mounted against Flint's 7th Ward Councilwoman Monica Galloway was followed by language being filed on Monday with the office of Genesee County Clerk John Gleason.

​​​Mayor Weaver fighting for her political life at federal court case involving whistle-blower lawsuit with some serious accusations 

    DETROIT — The biggest drama of the 2019 Flint mayoral race began to unfold Wednesday morning in Detroit inside a federal court room. That's where Flint Mayor Dr. Karen Weaver is expecting to be for the next couple weeks in a case that could spell an end to her political career. To suggest she's fighting for her political life would be an understatement.

   A former City Administrator has accused the mayor of some very serious stuff. They're not the typical kind of lawsuit type accusations. Flint's mayor and one of her closest aides (Aoine Gilcreast) are being called outright crooks. A high profile attorney from West Michigan (Katherine Smith Kenndy) promised listeners of The Morning Gazette during an interview months ago that this trial would attract an audience that includes FBI agents. Her opening argument on Wednesday sounded like she was revealing a criminal indictment, except she doesn't have any power to order handcuffs on anybody. READ MORE

Businessman Don Pfeiffer

​​​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
