DETROIT (AP) -- A state lawmaker says he was robbed at gunpoint near his Detroit home.
Democratic Rep. Jimmy Womack told WDIV-TV and the Detroit Free Press Monday that he was getting into his car at a store the previous evening and three men approached with guns drawn. He says they first demanded his car but he refused, so they robbed him of about $300.
Womack was not injured. Police are investigating.

      Right on. That's what happens when the Dem's enact all of these entitlement programs. People eventually feel entitled to help themselves to the property of others.

    THREE MEN WITH GUNS and he REFUSED to give up his car?? Seriously? If that's true, then his judgment is truly flawed. I DOUBT it even happened, especially if all they took was a measly $300 when he no DOUBT had multiple credit cards with him, as well! C'mon now.

    I bet he didn't like it, but it's ok for him to rob every michigan tax payer eye for an eye. It's called karma.
