“A company collecting signatures to strip Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) of her emergency powers coached paid petition circulators on giving voters false information, illegally collecting signatures without witnessing them, trespassing on private property, and even lying under oath, a secretly recorded videotape shows,” the Detroit Free Press reports.
“The profanity-peppered training session provides an inside look at the world of paid signature gatherers and could potentially pose problems for Unlock Michigan’s attempts to certify the close to 500,000 signatures the group hopes to collect.”
Said Eric Tisinger, on a secret recording: “This can be a real shady job. And when I say shady, I mean, people do all sorts of illegal shit all the time and never get caught. It’s really hard to get caught doing shit except for, like, forgeries.”Save to Favorites
