Politics Podcast: Who Should Have Investigated MSU Scandal?

Larry Nassar (NBC News)

Bill Ballenger and Dennis Denno, veterans of Michigan politics, discuss timely issues on "The Friday Morning Podcast," posted in partnership with Deadline Detroit.

  • Should the Michigan Legislature hold the state's taxpayers harmless if they lose their personal exemption due to the new tax reform law passed by Congress?
  • Why are so many candidates running to succeed Rep David Trott in the 11th Congressional District?
  • Three Republican candidates for governor, minus Bill Schuette, say they'll team up in a series of town halls around the state. Should the two Republicans running for U.S. Senate do the same thing?
  • Will enough signatures be validated on petitions to force an initiated law banning the prevailing wage?
  • Who should have investigated MSU's mishandling of the Larry Nassar sex scandal long before now—Attorney General Bill Schuette or Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gretchen Whitmer?
