The ACLU of Michigan has filed a formal complaint of discrimination against Republican congressional candidate Peter Meijer. This comes after Meijer made the decision to bar London-based act Drag Syndrome from performing at his venue, the Tanglefoot Building, during Grand Rapids’ annual ArtPrize event.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Michigan and a Grand Rapids-based organization are planning to file a formal complaint of discrimination against Peter Meijer, who is currently running as a Republican candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in Michigan's 3rd Congressional District.

A scion of the Meijer family is running to unseat U.S. Rep. Justin Amash, R-Mich.

Thirty-one-year-old Peter Meijer, grandson of the late retail industry titan Fred Meijer, is the latest Republican to line up to challenge maverick Congressman Justin Amash.

On Wednesday, Meijer released a 90-second online video, highlighting his service in the U.S. Army (he served in Iraq), and going after trash-talking politicians.

Americans are disillusioned and disappointed with Congress. The rock-bottom approval ratings confirm that.

With that in mind, what would you think about a candidate who promises to return or donate to charity any campaign contributions from sources that “taint" the candidate's integrity?

Who refuses to do anything that attacks the character of his or her opponent?
