Former state Rep. Lisa Howze told me Wednesday night that she worried about a backlash after she endorsed Mike Duggan, who is white, for mayor of Detroit earlier in the day.

All day, she was the subject of venomous, unfounded accusations that she was paid off or promised a job within Duggan’s administration if he wins the November general election.
Ten minutes after hanging up the phone with me, Howze was upstairs in her house when she heard suspicious noises on the first floor. She hid under the bed and called 911, telling the operator that she feared she might be a target of retaliation for her endorsement.
Her neighbor reported seeing five or six people enter the back door.
When police arrived about 20 minutes later, Howze found nothing missing but $53 in cash.
A few hours later on Faceboook, Howze questioned whether the intrusion was tied to her endorsement.
“While everybody on Facebook was frantic all day Tuesday about my endorsement of Mike Duggan for Mayor, 5 men kicked in my door while I was home,” she wrote. “The only thing taken was $53 in cash that I had on my desk. Do you think this was a coincidence?”
