Benton Harbor Emergency Manager Puts Radio Station on Ebay

Benton Harbor has been declared the poorest town in the US by a Kalamazoo College professor. It has, over the past several decades, been deprived of most things that make a community thrive. Most recently the Emergency Manager Joe Harris fired the mayor and city commission, thereby stealing citizens' right to vote. BH has, however, maintained a small radio station. You might tune in and hear one of the city commissioners (fired by Joe Harris) speaking, or maybe even Jesse Jackson, up from Chicago to say a few words. Rachel Maddow on MSNBC recently reported Harris actually shut down the station and is trying to sell it on Ebay. See the report, a couple minutes into the video. Rev. Pinkney can be seen briefly.

You name it, Harris will take it from BH. Gov. Rick Snyder is who he answers to...
