"Are serving as state lawmakers across the country. But in most capitals, family leave policies have not changed. That leaves new moms with few options when having Children. Abigail, since he has more from member station W. K a. R in Lansing. Mallory McMorrow was part of 2018 so called year of the woman. When a record number of women were elected to office, she flipped a Michigan State Senate district in the suburbs of Detroit. Your first interview you're very hungry. Seven weeks ago, she gave birth to her first daughter. No. Uh uh. She's like the size of the microphone. You know, Like many parents, McMorrow is taking time off to be with her newborn. But while state employees get 12 weeks of paid time off, there's no parental leave policy for lawmakers. The answer to their constituents and their pay is written in the state constitution so they can technically take off as much time as they want The catch being they miss votes. I can't vote remotely. I can't proxy vote. I have to physically go toe Lansing. And I have a newborn who naps for 20 minutes and then is up again and ready to eat and be changed.

Senator Vic Morrow said she spoke up because she could already envision attack outs criticizing her for not being in the capital to vote vote She missed so she could spend time with her baby. Are we comfortable with the idea? That we don't want working moms in the Legislature because that's the message unless we change the system, she says. This is a conversation she's had with many women that women can have it all. Just not all at once on that feels true for her in the Legislature. The
From Public Defender To Stanley Cup Champion
"So joe for those who might not follow the nhl super closely. Can you just give us a sense of what jon cooper has accomplished during his as a coach in the nhl. Definitely jon cooper is the longest tenured coach shell. He's on an eight th anniversary of his hiring on this week. The winningest coach in franchise history for the lightning. And i think he's highly regarded as one of the better coaches in the league and probably a candidate coach team. Canada at the next olympics are positions and olympics for the trump player so deadly highly regarded coach but up until this past season. He hasn't won the big one and that was kind of the big question surrounding it. And how would you describe his personality. Well he's a players go. She's a really fun personality. Like you quotes wedding crashers. Upper seventy six. No excuses public champion. You uses a champion. The only person you have to answer to when you go home at night is really yourself. The national media loves him because he is a great world this charismatic. You're going to get knocked down. There's no question people are going to push down. Because ultimately they want to see it fail if you think maybe teams on trips to like field of dreams when he was in earlier years coaching. He's all about the different sides and binding guys together on the ice and that if you get is connected as a group and the for each other and very process over outcome kind of guy and so you definitely has that charisma that makes them unique. I think the players like that. We'll show you recently. Wrote about how jon cooper has followed perhaps the most unconventional path of any stanley cup winning coach. So take us back to the late. Nineteen ninety s. What was john. Cooper's lifelike at that time he was living in a condo east lansing area couple remains but he was just trying to figure out where you wanted to be in his life. What he wanted to do for work. He was good ball. Charismatic lawyer but his heart wasn't in it always always wondering when is the fulfillment. When are you going to sit there and wake up every day and say. I can't wait to go do what i'm gonna do. He was defender district court in lansing michigan about a thousand dollars a month. You know we're going for indigent clients. He was working on. du is having divorces. You've got a two person law. Office him in a paralegal. He's still didn't know i guess. Were taken at that point. And you got in touch with the judge. Who worked with jon cooper back. Then what did he say about cooper skills in the courtroom and you just notice and how clients clients listen to prosecutors respected him i think is the kind of ability that transcends coaching the ability to persuade players to adopt your system or just believe the approach. So you know. He's he's a good salesman. He always says convincing players. Convincing a jury and i don't think he knew then that it would be kind of the key to him. Maybe starting coaching career. So how did jon cooper go from being this lowly paid lawyer and a former lacrosse player. Who had only played a year of club hockey in college to being high school hockey coach. Well the run in his son playful lansing catholic high school and they needed a coach and so he knew of john skills on the ice and new of his charisma and then he is asked to one day in the building. I saw the coach. would you be interested. He looks at me and goes. Dc the stack of resumes. I have he says. I'll tell you one thing you coach kids high school hockey team and i will take your resume from here. We put it here. Just this exactly. That was his first kind of foray into coaching hockey. Was nine thousand nine hundred nine hundred thousand lansing catholic cougars hockey team and that was seventeen. You actually talked to some of the players on that lansing catholic team. What did they tell you about jon. Cooper the high school coach. I think what's interesting knees. They remember the first meeting in the cafeteria where he's using himself to like twenty kids and parents and those us have just nervous as they were and are waiting to hear whereas the hockey background. Who did he coach before. Because one of the red wings was he part of this huge talk about law school in wall street and this guy another guys were in the nhl players. Even highly college players inducted himself would be anywhere high in coaching world. A reflection of guys play together. I think they'll be the first ones to tell you. None of them really on the track to make the national hockey league but they were such a joy to be around the competed their butts off just line. Who an awkward gesture. The of funny kid and team talked about like there was a hill just a mile from the school that the workouts outside the big hill. The he must've just saw he was driving around and he made us run up this hill with do bear calls and stuff. That is the source. I've ever been my life like. I could not long like off chris. Monrovia now works the red wings. Illitch family talked about how they had this practice where they had no on the ice and they're doing push ups and sit ups and kristin ross. Who served in the military students in afghanistan he goes. I went through the army for seven years. And i went through a lot of work out a lot of hellish days. Afghans dead. That's one of those days that i think back much. It's not as bad as back. And what else did you learn about his coaching philosophy back. Then you know like what were the things that were important to him that he really emphasized to the team. Making guys feel connected or part of it no matter if you were the best player on this team or like the thirteenth forward and i think jeff swan is appropriate examples. Like i wasn't the most natural coordinated like county out now who put me not aligned with the two players. Mike sack out with the most gifted athlete. That are high school in you. The team is better holding. Some of its part. They wanted them to play. Have have meaning and swan. Storing the biggest fools that season the most for player that year. So you know. He's told everyone the most improved player really halls like a special place for him. Something he takes lightly. It was a really really nice compliment. They talked about the hard hat that they gave out. After every win which was an all white instruction half that was something that the player of the game whether at block shot or a big hit or in ceremony the post game. We'll get this production. How they put their name and a sharpie but it was more of a. What did you do to help the team. Really recognizing layers who maybe didn't shop scores sheep but who are just dedicated themselves to helping the team. These success those are moments that came together that they remember forever and become an integral part of their story on a way to winning out like the championship. Well this sort of ragtag bunch of guys did win an unlikely state regional championship in almost mighty ducks kind of way and joe as you talks to all these guys who played for jon. Cooper what connections. Were you able to make between cooper the coach of the lansing catholic cougars and cooper the coach of the stanley. Cup champion tampa bay. Lightning guesswork me. Talking to guys. That new men who've now that he hasn't changed much in terms of his personality he had kind of style which coach's house you through professional level versus coaching. high school. Kids a lot of the same kind of tenants but he had then he still uses today. Kerry that floss with me all the way through the nhl in onto the honestly. It doesn't really change. Human beings are human beings and everybody needs to be motivated. It's just finding the right way to motivate. Rose stood up in my living room and watch the game and cheer tampa. You're welcome. you're welcome for started. His rise

After Record Turnout, Republicans Are Trying to Make It Harder to Vote
"Louise Kelly, a record 158 million Americans voted last November. Many cast their ballots early and by mail well now, in the aftermath of President Biden's victory, some Republican state lawmakers are proposing bills that would effectively make it harder to vote. Here to talk us through what is happening with voting laws in three states where the 2020 election was really close our Stephen Fowler of Georgia Public Broadcasting, Abigail, since key of WK are in Lansing, Michigan. And been Giles of Cage's in Phoenix. Arizona. Welcome all three of you. Thanks. Thank you. Thank you for having us, Steven. I've got to start with you. Not only because George is my home state, but because there has, of course been so much focus on Georgia and on Trump's efforts to throw out Biden's victory there. What are GOP lawmakers they're discussing. Well this week, Many Republican lawmakers who pushed false claims of election fraud have signed on to a number of bills in the Senate aimed at making it harder to vote. And that's after Democrats flipped both U. S Senate seats and help defeat President Trump. They would do things like Ban absentee ballot. Dropbox is severely restrict who could request a mail in absentee ballot and would undo the so called motor voter law that automatically updates your voter registration. Whenever you go to the D. M V. Now there are a few proposals that seem most likely to be enacted. One would add some sort of security requirement when you request an absentee by male vote in the future, such as writing your driver's license I d number or sending in a photocopy of your I D when you request a ballot, All right, let's head west over to Arizona Been a zoo, you know Well, Biden's victory was razor thin there as it was in Georgia. What is the debate unfolding where you are? Well, we're seeing voting laws that would impact every step of the voting process. Starting with getting registered. One measure would make it more difficult for county officials to go out into the community and hold voter registration drives. There was even a bill to abolish the incredibly popular vote by mail system in Arizona. The sponsor backtracked off that idea within hours of introducing the bill. What other ideas include requiring people to get early ballot envelopes notarized that's been described by some as a poll tax, and another proposal says You could get an early ballot mailed to you, but you couldn't tell it back. They want you to hand deliver it to a polling place, and perhaps the most controversial ideas would directly impact the presidential election results. One plan would divvy up electoral college votes by congressional district like Maine and Nebraska. Another would actually let the Legislature straight up, revoke the certification of results and let lawmakers pick who gets the electoral college votes. Wow. Um, Abigail. How about Michigan Democrats control the executive branch, but Republicans control the Legislature. How does that dynamic play out in terms of what's happening with voting laws on the discussion over what to do with him in Michigan? Well, it's been a real split screen. We have Democrats and clerks who are pointing to this election as the safest and most secure of their careers. Bar. Bayram is one of the clerks from the larger counties and Michigan, and she called on Republicans this week to say what's been clear throat. All of these hearings that this election was fair and free of fraud. At the end of the day. If people do not want to believe this backed, they're not gonna believe it. Regardless of how many audits are performed. Reports are issue or how transparent the processes and in Michigan are. Democratic Secretary of State is saying she wants to do things like male absentee ballot applications to registered voters and federal elections. Republicans are countering with things like putting cameras on unstaffed ballot. Dropbox is neither of those are likely to get very far. But there is middle ground on issues like making sure there's common training for pole challengers on Stephen and been a quick quick reaction from each of you on that. How much of this in your state? It is. Real policy proposal. How much is for show? Well, Mary Louise after the last couple months of hand wringing over votes we've seen top Republican lawmakers in Georgia say that they're not going to do some of the more extreme proposals. They're not for cutting, no excuse absentee voting, and many of these bills are likely just to appease their constituents who say that more needs to be done. Why do Republicans in your states say changes like this are necessary, Given that there were no major issues with absentee voting in the 2020 election, Given that federal officials have confirmed it was the most secure election in American History. Stephen Bendy one. Do you want to take that one? Justification in Arizona is Pretty simply put as distrust, citing the misinformation that's out there and citing the fact that there are a lot of these Republicans constituents who say they have doubts whether or not those doubts are based on any valid information. Republicans have kind of push past that and just said the fact that there are doubt justifies continued discussions about the election. And changes to the law that they say might inspire some more confidence

Supreme Court: It's too early to review Trump's census plan
"Trump won at least a temporary victory today in the supreme court dismissed a lawsuit challenging his plan to exclude undocumented immigrants from the census with more on that. Here's pete williams. The president's plan would for the first time ever leave undocumented immigrants out of the census. I'm with the. Us census bureau figures that are used to decide how many seats the states get in the us house. How many votes. They have in the electoral college and how much they get in billions of dollars of federal grants based on population by a six to three vote. The court dismissed challenge to the trump lansing. There's about it that's unknown. The court said it isn't clear whether the census bureau can even figure out how many undocumented people are here and what effect removing them from the census would have on the states several states with large immigrant population sued to block the plan saying they would lose political power. The lawyers for those states say if president trump's does try to change the census number. They'll file another lawsuit. If that happens. We'll be right back in court Will sue. And i'm very confident that we will be able to get. That policy ruled unconstitutional. When this case was argued just a few weeks ago a majority of the court seemed to think the trump plan would violate the constitution's command that the census include the whole number of persons in each state.
Michigan State House, Senate close over 'threats of violence' during Electoral College meeting
"Looked for a time earlier today. Like things could get ugly in michigan. The state closed its house and senate office buildings over what they said were credible threats of violence during today's electoral college meeting and then republican state representative gary isan suggested he and other republicans would disrupt the electoral college vote. He also predicted there. Would be violence prompting this. Can you assure me that this is going to be a safe day in in lansing. Nobody's gonna get hurt no. I don't know what we're doing. Today is chartered. Here's it been done after. Gary isan made those comments michigan. Republican legislative leaders pulled him from his committee assignments. Meanwhile the scene in lansing was thankfully ultimately cau- just a dozen or so pro-trump protesters showing up outside the capitol a chilly day and when he grow group of republican electors tried to enter that building michigan state. Police turn them away. Half of those call was much an often from holding or ignore taking part of your process. Anybody else thank ben check in inside the democratic electors about the people's business where they elected joe biden. Starting barnes. has the tally been completed. Yes lieutenant governor. The elected unanimously cast. Sixteen votes for joseph r biden. I'm joined now by michigan's democratic secretary of state johnson benson earlier. This month had her home surrounded by angry trump supporters. Some of them harmed who falsely accused her of allowing the election to be stolen. But start secretary of state with your your top line on. Today i was. I was a bit worried when i saw the news about closing the house and the senate but it seemed like things went smoothly. How do you feel went today. I think it was a great day for democracy. Chris was really a reflection of all the work that went into this election to ensure that we were able to have a high turnout election In the midst of the pandemic all the work that's happened. Since the polls closed on november third to ensure the votes were counted accurately it securely and really this was the the end result of a long and winding road that every step of the way we work to make sure that the voters well was heard and democracy was protected. We have seen now. Obviously there were arrests of a number of individuals who have been charged with allegedly plotting the kidnapping or execution of the democratic governor. Gretchen whitmer You had people outside of your house Some of them armed a protesting. There were concerned today in arizona. As i understand it where the leading of the electors was moved to an undisclosed location. What does it do to democratic governance and democracy when this sort of threat of violence hangs over the activities of folks. What you know. I started my career in the south investigating and hate crimes all around the country and was really instilled there with the strong sense in an acute awareness of just how much oftentimes does have to be preserved in the potential for violence that that could engender to ensure that democracy does prevail. And so that's never been lost on me and many of us including my friends secretary hobson in arizona. And it's something that we're actually acutely aware rows and willing to with to endure in order to ensure that our democracy is protected. A lot of people have said to me this year. Did you really sign up for this and my response is absolutely. I absolutely signed up to put everything on the line to protect the will of the people to protect our democracy. None of us of course predicted all of the turns of events that have occurred since the polls closed But that said we're ready and will continue to be ready. We'll continue to stay safe to ensure that our democracy and turn is also safe. Something i've seen a in many states across the nation in reaction is a real circular logic from republicans in which after touting or tolerating or even endorsing these blue to chris conspiracy theories now pointing and saying well people. Are you know. There's a lot of concern and using that as a predicate for restrictions on voting. Well we're gonna have to shutdown mail in voting. Well we're gonna have to take another look at this. Well we're gonna have to do voter. Id and signature matching all these things. How much you seen that michigan. Do you think there's going to be a battle now about ballot access. The uses these conspiracies as a kind of weaponized tool. Yeah sure it again. That's also what we've seen. Throughout the history of our democracy people create a fire and then create an idea of what needs to put that fire out and often times. Election administrators are stuck in the middle and that voters are are stuck in the middle. When i believe needs to happen is we need to one come together and actually listen to each other and try to heal this. Divide right now but to do so. On the basis of facts and data and truth we all have to be working from the same set of facts here. Facts and truth have actually been unequivocal undeniable throughout this entire process. We had a high turnout election michigan. Five point five million people voted in the midst of the pandemic. It was secure. The results were accurate. So we can start from there. We can find ways to improve the process moving forward making data driven decisions but we also have to do is acknowledge the impact of the conspiracy theories in false information that has been spread by many actors throughout this process and correct that before trying to solve for any potential issues. Moving forward right michigan secretary of state jocelyn benson. Thank you so much for being with me.

I didn't hear anything. I live in the area. I woke up last night. Out of nowhere at three am stepped outside. I stepped outside stopped outside a terrible. It smelled like gun smoke in my neighborhood but there was no shootings. Why why is my neighborhood's gunsmoke. People need to get a life other than the terrifying others. Get job read a book volunteer community. You alone are responsible for your actions in your life. I think and blonde is hoping that the shooters are going to see this and having a pitney that they're they're. They're doing dumb shit. They need to get a life next one. Just stop the crap. Will you do your due diligence to interview the community. I heard the shots myself. An officer on the scanner said she was unpleasant grove and real and didn't hear shot how residents on the other side of churchhill heard them as well so hurt them as well so to blatantly say there was these were social media. Rumors is disrespectful respectful cowardice and ally what was l._p._d. Doing last night to not hear the shots or catch the shooters. I'm not saying the shots related to the shootings yesterday even before but it happened so we'll ix what are you. What are you going to do it. Isn't it your existence based in <hes> based on information <hes> the people the a journalist consistent of getting the truth and do so skies asking for the the press and the media to look into this figure out what the hell's going out. Why does everybody think they're hearing gunshots last night. Why was everybody but he listening to. The police scanners last night rose trae home. This is an attack inside. It's not just lansing detroit ohio. Look at your news feed. They're killing minority kids everywhere. This one seems a little extreme. I can't base any of the other other areas with circumstantial information but perch two thousand nineteen lansing michigan. They shooting everything everybody everybody did they. They rape it. Everybody everywhere help us. Thirteen shootings in two hours get inside and strapped to fuck up currently shooting every side of town scanners going. I'm crazy another person listening to the scanner man highstreet walking around shooting. Look at these reports. These are specific reports. People are hearing from the scanner silverstone waverly jolly mount hope in a realist mill pond in whole fares park a fourteen year old shot will martin luther king just now joe the tearing this bitch up kids are dying sounds like rumors to me. No it was true. Kidney shot tell that's it's the people who lost their children. Kelly anderson read these comments. I wasn't joking. Babe lies lies lies. My scanner was being blown up with shots fired calls and people knocking on people's doors and crap so light. Is someone else again. These skip uh-huh if the scanner from that night is unavailable if the nine eleven calls from that night or unavailable that that's a huge red flag surprised. Someone didn't start recording the scanner themselves as somebody had to. This is like when you get that many someone had to be like we're recording. This not true a kid shot. Tell let's the people who lost their children. Children being plural next one last night to kids were shot. Someone is angry. It is very plausible and i'm partial to believe my ears and not a new story story contradicting many many emails or many many contradicting many many calls i heard last night being reported to the police department. Hundreds of people aren't hearing the same shots in different areas of the city at different times that lasted until about two thirty in the morning to three in the morning. I was up all night listening. I just shut it off around six a._m. But again believe what you want. I speak truth. You speak yours if someone fires a gun. Does it shoot a is a dangerous straight bullets. Kill people and crazy crazy people feel empowered because they get away with crime also escalated to hurt other people next one with the button. I'm just trying not to have it. Skip ahead all right just to make sure clinton as it says in the story facebook share tax shots not fired and shooting injuries are two different things yes that's true. Someone was driving around shooting a gun off last night to kids were shot. Someone is angry. It is very plausible on a personal believe my ears not a new story contradicting many calls call. I heard last night being reported to the police department. Hundreds of people aren't hearing the same the same you like this is the list repeatedly is around order next yeah. This is a lie. I heard dozens of shots in a row in my neighborhood at two a._m. Last night i listened to the police scanner all night with nine thousand plus people on the scanner also listening. What's the population lancing. The calls were coming in the dispatch. Actually is a perfect circle around the city. At the correct intervals lansing state journal got played or they don't. They don't wanna be when they made the perfect. Intervals is like someone started. We're here by the time they work their way around this part of town. That's when the phone call started like twenty minutes later because it takes that long to get from one part to is that what they mean no they mean somebody who clearly driving around shooting as they were shooting. The calls followed in a in a circle around their people reporting where they're here hearing it. My scanner was being blown up with cole. Definitely gunshots last night at about ten pm lots of them. Oh police said they were in in the they were in the area of many of the calls and didn't hear thing they're hearing thing yeah. This is a lie. I heard it doesn't shots in a row in my neighborhood at two a._m. Last night you heard ten of them more more than once sounds like you need to move here burke same thing when they they happening all over. It's only shots fired because it didn't hit someone who cares it. Could it could have we have two children hurt and one day. I heard them to next one. Okay you missed the part. I heard the gunshots in no. They don't want you data to listen to them so you you fall for their bullshit well if you if you want to discuss the federal human memory especially during stressful times that's that's a whole the other thing we could have fun discussing that but the two didn't read version of it all it's human memory is the the real bullshit. We're talking about human memory here. Folks were talking on the fly. It happening like calls there was there was causing people on social media as it was happening. This wasn't like a week later. Hey do what happened last time you so you may you may remember hearing that many gunshots but that doesn't mean that it actually happened. I'm not trying to gaslight you up just stating facts again if everyone was reporting it after the fact. Maybe maybe this was all in real time. People were frigging. Fuck out next one don't over think don't think at police lingo is easy to pick up. Mother-in-law in law listens to it all night drifting off to sleep. I heard it for many years now since she's lived with me and my wife and my wife has picked up the habit nothing like thought to asleep to the police scanner. There was people shooting last night but do you think the lansing police really wanted to stop them and and have a gun battle. Now i heard that this batch of saying white ford infusion was seen shooting and driving on pleasant grove and then a cop to say says i just saw white ford fusion turn right pleasant grove and copy nothing further than people's houses houses around pleasant grove started getting shot up next one cop responsible like any house damage. How do i think those people should be allowed to sue the city then there was an officer right there and he knew what he was looking for. That's what that's why f._b._i. F._b._i. Nearly all police departments discourage civilians from listening to police scanner. Dan fit the standards. You want to hear anything about the truth d._n._a. Shots shots fired. Calls and shootings are two very different. Things and police track them differently. Certainly shootings are are classified as people who are struck by a bullet because i definitely heard them all on the scanner and i definitely heard ten of them attend in ten or more shots and more than once by my house to try again. Please scanner can be very unreliable because it's police discussing things oftentimes that they still don't have all the facts ex- yet on the have the facts that there was clearly lots of reports of shootings. It's horrible. Go look at what i shared and read the comments. I just creeped out a bunch of people's posts. It is heartbreaking to read. Yes horrible. I'm currently listening to police scanner which one this is what it's all about how five zero radio and type in ingram county yes. I don't think i'm going to bed tonight brought. This is sad who even either it's multiple people doing it or there. They'll do one one round in one car then switch. There was a shooting. I heard what oh dear this is. It's all about what he shares the the articles next one very oh we got window shot out. We got cars shot out. We got bullet holes in cars ars. We got car show does that does that. Look like shoot out a parking lot. Guess physical evidence here. They clearly got hit. The top car is actually in their driveway. The house shot up last night bro. What lansing it's crazy as fuck right now always has that man hardest fucking lansing. No there in three cars and shooting people are dumb the most casual response ever there's three there's three people shooting yes and they're banging on doors and ship ship and we are. We are all in one room. These people are hiding all in one room. Do you think they're hiding all in one room because there's rumors the bats. That's happening next one. Thank you for saying. I'm a cool okay. I think i think might we might be the end of the line. Try try one more one more almost background. We can take that. I don't i don't know what the hell happened in lansing michigan but that's a shitload the smoke a little bit of physical evidence in the house and the cars that got shot up. Something clearly happened so i asked i asked actually young so. Was there any more follow up on. What was the button on this. Yes and she said no no follow up on it but it definitely happened again. The following night there is there is again shots in reports of people shooting the cars and stuff the second two nights in a row dishes. This should happen who knows who knows what to believe but i don't believe for a second there was one isolated shooting accident in in lansing on august fifth. Seriously wanna know how these people are going to file for their insurance like if your car is shot your house shot. You have insurance that you have to show that you file a police report if the police refused to believe that your vehicle although it's right in front of them has a belivel- what are you supposed to do..
