The Detroit Sportsmen's Congress is a non-democratically elected representative delegation of roots-music musicians founded in 2015 by current House Speaker, Matthew Sayles, and former Majority Whip, Ralph Lowi.
Though qualifications for membership in the DSC are deliberately byzantine and obscure, it is rumored that casual fandom of Detroit athletic associations and support for alternative forms of country music are desired, but not required, for representative status. Prior status as a trapper or "puller" of clay-pigeons is also taken into consideration as a qualifying factor for non-elected representation. Membership of the DSC is deliberately flexible as representation can grow and decrease based on periodic census gathering and caucusing.
Their Mission: "To draw out the echoing twang, reverb, and darkness from the smoldering remnants of manifest destiny that still mournfully beat in the hearts of our unknowing constituency."
