LANSING, Mich. – An alarming new report from Detroit News journalist Beth LeBlanc published today states that officials in Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s administration burned documents and deleted emails related to violations and fines they imposed on workplaces as a result of Whitmer’s COVID orders.
When the target of one violation threatened to legally depose the agency director to uncover what was in the burned public records, Whitmer’s administration suddenly dismissed the fine.

“The dismissal by the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration came more than a year after it was issued and over a week after an hours-long deposition in which an inspector admitted to destroying emails and notes related to a citation against the city. During the Oct. 12 deposition, according to a transcript, the inspector waffled when answering questions about the influence of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s overturned executive orders on MIOSHA’s COVID-related citations…“When asked about notes he took during the investigation and interviews, Hartman said he burned them. The inspector also said he destroyed emails from his supervisor regarding the case.”
