The Democrats running for state Attorney General represent two wings of the party.
Dana Nessel is a self-described progressive. Pat Miles is more centrist, but he’s shifted some of his positions on issues as he’s talked to Democrats across the state.
We asked each of the candidates about asset forfeiture.
Civil asset forfeiture allows law enforcement to seize property when police think it was bought with illegally gotten money such as drug money.
But, even if those people are not convicted or even charged with a crime, they have to fight in court to get their assets back.
