There was an interesting new post written by Nami Dockery and published at Detroit, Michigan’s WXYZ. Take a look at this excerpt:
A Michigan man is facing a felony charge for what he says was simply an election day joke about coronavirus. But a judge decided there’s enough evidence to go to trial. Police charged Peter Trzos with falsely claiming to expose someone to a harmful biological substance.
Authorities say he brought his mail-in ballot to Keego Harbor City Hall on Election Day. He says the election clerk made him lick the envelope to seal it. The clerk says as he handed it to her, he said, “Here’s some COVID for you.” She says she believed her health and life were in danger.
Trzos’ lawyer says she knew it was a joke. If convicted, Trzos could get up to five years in jail.
