Wayne State Pulls Down Website

Investigation sparked by Center FOIA request

Wayne State University has taken down the Web pages of its Labor Studies Center in the wake of a Mackinac Center investigation into improper political content on the website, according to MIRS Capitol Capsule.

“We are reviewing the labor studies program to make sure we’re in compliance of state law,” Harvey Hollins III, Wayne State vice president of government and community affairs, told MIRS. Hollins also noted “The question is whether or not there’s a violation of campaign finance law given the content on the website.

Ken Braun, managing editor of Michigan Capitol Confidential, told MIRS that Wayne State’s action is “vindication in and of itself” regarding the Freedom of Information Act requests the Center filed with Wayne State.

Talking Points Memo said Wayne State's actions were "a direct result of Mackinac's inquires."
