26. The Emergency Manager Law repealed by a people's vote, and then repassed in a few weeks

And then there's the fact that the original Emergency Manager Law was illegally passed in such a way to make it go into effect right way, despite not having enough votes to go into effect right away. That should have gotten the first law struck down by a court, but it didn't.

(Laws in Michigan need a super majority vote to be declared an emergency to go into effect right away, it's written into the state constitution, in an amendment that George Romney himself helped write decades ago. If a law's not an emergency it can't go into effect until the end of the state legislature's yearly legislative session, which is in December).
