From the Associated Press — Republicans who control the Michigan Legislature have spent about $542,000 suing Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer over her use of emergency powers during the coronavirus pandemic. The Senate and House released

The $542,000 of public money has paid attorneys at Bush Seyferth, a
Troy-based law firm.
