Rev. Edward Pinkney tells a gathering of Silicon Valley DeBug: "My city was taken over by a dictator." Michigan's Public Act 4 allows the state to send a non-elected appointee to take over a city, displacing the mayor and other officials. Pinkney traces the action to a struggle over lakefront land coveted by Whirlpool Corporation for commercial development. He warns, "The Emergency Financial Manager is coming to your town!" Includes the famous "Buck Naked Fish" Story!
This film is being shown as background to the current situation in which Rev. Pinkney could face up to 25 years in jail on charges of voter fraud, when he submitted papers to recall the mayor of Benton Harbor.
