Undercover voter fraud concerns, the regional mass transit plan

A conservative non-profit group tries to expose voter fraud concerns and a $4.6 billion regional mass transit plan are the topics.

Part 1: Undercover voter fraud concerns

A conservative political group is trying to find fraud in the voting process targeting some high profile Detroiters.

The group, called Project Veritas, showing group members going undercover in Tuesday's primary. They used the names of Mayor Mike Duggan, state politicians and reporters to get ballots without showing any ID, license or passport.

The non-profit says they didn't really commit voter fraud -- because they never took the ballots -- and never actually voted. But they say this video proves we need tougher ID laws at the polls to stop people from cheating.

Is this video vigilante exposing a real problem or just demanding a solution to a problem that doesn't exist?

On the panel:

Conservative activist James O'Keefe from Project Veritas.

Greg Bowens, public relations specialist and Grosse Pointe NAACP chapter founder.

State Rep. Jim Runestad, (R-White Lake)

Part 2: The regional mass transit plan

A deal has finally been reached on a regional mass transit plan and voters will have the final say on this $4.6 billion plan in November.

Supporters say it will help the region create new jobs and opportunity. But opponents argue that it's another big bloated waste of money.

On the panel:

Tiffany Gunter, Deputy CEO and chief operations officer for the Regional Transit Authority of Southeast Michigan.
 
Megan Owens, executive director of Transit Riders United.

Simon Haddad, businessman, activist and member of the Michigan Taxpayer Alliance.
