“Unlock Michigan” under criminal investigation

Gretchen Whitmer

A citizen’s group working to end the emergency powers held by Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is now the subject of a criminal investigation.

Unlock Michigan is facing allegations that it improperly gathered 500,000 signatures on a petition to repeal the Emergency Powers of the Governor Act.

The state’s attorney general is looking into the group’s methods after her office received complaints that signatures were given under false pretenses.

Charges have yet to be filed and details of the investigation into Unlock Michigan’s activities will be released at a later date.
