AG: No Charges Despite ‘Unsavory Tactics’ In Petition Drive


From the Associated Press — No criminal charges will be filed in an investigation of a petition drive to repeal a law that was used to shut down parts of Michigan last year during the coronavirus pandemic. Attorney General Dana Nessel says investigators found “unsavory practices and sleazy tactics” but nothing that would stand up as crimes in court. A group called Unlock Michigan appears to
have more than enough signatures to send a repeal of the 1945 law to the GOP-controlled Legislature. For months, Governor Gretchen Whitmer used the law to order sweeping restrictions on the economy. The Michigan Supreme Court declared it unconstitutional in October, but Unlock Michigan wants to permanently sweep it off the books.
