Koch-backed conservative group spams Detroit with fake eviction notices
The pro-corporate activist group Americans for Prosperity is campaigning in Detroit against a transportation project called the New International Trade Crossing, which aims to make Michigan a center for north American international trade.
But in opposing the plan, they’ve got to the very extremes of shock campaigning, dropping forms claiming to be eviction notices off at homes in the Delray area of Detroit. Contacted by area reporters, the Koch-backed group defended their flyers, saying they “were meant to startle people.”
