Fake county document says business owners who take coronavirus precautions may go to jail

“The County Clerk does not have the authority to make an interpretation of an Executive Order or provide legal advice,” said Suzie Roehm the county clerk in the press release. Roehm added that, because the document uses her name and office in an unauthorized manner, the letter has been sent to the county sheriff’s office for investigation.The false document refers to a Michigan Supreme Court ruling on Friday, which found that Whitmer did not have the authority to extend a state of emergency, or to issue orders within that state, under the 1976 Emergency Management Act or the 1945 Emergency Powers of the Governor Act. Through that process, a person may request documents and other records held by agencies, but would not receive a list of answers to a question, or an interpretation of state or federal law from an official.The letter also states that the document may be shown to “security or whom it may concern” in order to get around mask requirements.
