MLive, October 9th: ‘Extreme opposition’ to school mask mandates target Michigan health officials with threats of violence
Public health officials across Michigan are facing threats of violence from their neighbors while anger over school masking requirements boils into calls to strip health departments of their power and funding.
Health officials are targets of harassment, death threats and accusations of treason being voiced in chaotic public meetings as parents and political activists demand an end to measures meant to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Expressions of intense anger over health rules are pitting school boards and county commissions against health officials who worry the outrage is derailing efforts to protect their communities.
Sure enough, here in Oakland County, a mysterious new Political Action Committee formed by Republican politician & activist David Staudt in mid-September has already started running full-page, misleading & flat-out false attack ads against local school board members who support mask mandates in the local newsweekly.
They're even openly bragging about being "well-funded" and promising to also go after the Oakland County Board of Commissioners and County Executive. They've vowed that "the ads in the Eagle are just the beginning."
