Presidential Primary
Procedure Explained
Oakland County Clerk Bill Bullard Jr.
wants to assist voters confused with
Michigan's Feb. 28 presidential primary
ballot. Although voters must check a box
identifying themselves as Republican or
Democrat, it does not mean that they are
registering as either one, he said.
The primary is considered closed, and
if a Democrat wants to influence the
Republican primary, he or she must check
a box for a Republican ballot, he said.
Those who are not registered to vote
must do so by Jan. 30 to participate in
the primary. For information, go to www.
michigan.gov/elections.

Atlanta Publisher Resigns
Over Assassination Scenario
(JTA) — The owner and publisher of the
Atlanta Jewish Times has resigned and is
seeking a buyer in the wake of a column
he wrote speculating that Israel would
consider assassinating President Obama.
Andrew Adler announced Monday that
he is "relinquishing all day-to-day activi-
ties effective immediately" following the
publishing of his opinion piece saying that
Obama's assassination was among Israel's
options in heading off a nuclear Iran.
Adler named staff writer John McCurdy
as interim managing editor. Adler said he
would publish an apology.
[Editor's Note: Andrew Adler, a longtime
publisher of newspapers in the Atlanta
Jewish community, purchased the Atlanta

Jewish Times from the company that owns
the Detroit Jewish News in April 2009.]
The Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta
had called on Adler to sell the weekly.
"While we acknowledge his public
apology and remorse, the damage done
to the people of Israel, the global Jewish
people and especially the Jewish commu-
nity of Atlanta is irreparable the Atlanta
Federation said in a statement.
In a Jan. 13 column, Adler outlined what
he said were three possible responses
by Israel to Iran's acquiring a nuclear
weapon: a pre-emptive strike against
Hamas and Hezbollah; a direct strike on
Iran; and "three, give the go-ahead for
U.S.-based Mossad agents to take out a
president deemed unfriendly to Israel in
order for the current vice president to take
his place, and forcefully dictate that the
United States policy includes its helping
the Jewish state obliterate its enemies."
CNN reported that the Secret Service is
investigating Adler over the column.
