Why is the Department of Civil Rights' staff accusing its "untruthful, vengeful and cruel" management of creating a "toxic" work environment that has created "morbidly low" employee morale? Former Civil Rights Commission Chair Alma Wheeler Smith shares her opinion on a critical employee survey that revealed these accusations.

Senate Elections Committee Chair Ruth Johnson wants Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson to put aside three hours to answer her committee's questions on elections-related issues. Johnson opines on no-reason absentee voting, allowing mailed ballots to be counted after Election Day if they are postmarked on Election Day or earlier and other issues.

Also, political consultant Mario Morrow of Mario Morrow & Associates joins the MIRS team to talk about what Gov. Gretchen Whitmer would do if President Donald Trump tried to bring a political rally to a Michigan arena, how Republicans win when the conversation is on race relations and if Republicans can win with a citizens initiative to scale back the Governor's emergency powers during COVID-19.
