Spranger is now facing three criminal cases, including battery for kicking an employee and taking a non-employee to a conference in Washington, D.C. at the expense of the county -- in addition to perjury for signing an affidavit with knowledge that what she reported was not true.
But as might be expected, Ms. Spranger is not going quietly. In a rambling document filed in federal court, she is seeking to have her position returned, and is demanding an immediate investigation and audit into possible crimes against the clerk's office.
The document appears to be seeking intervention by Gov. Rick Snyder and makes mention of the use of the Michigan National Guard to "execute, suppress insurrection and repel invasion."
The 11-page document is titled "administrative claim notice of administrative overthrow of a constitutional office clerk of court of Macomb County by rogue county agents." Spranger wants the return of "all illegally removed files by those public officials who are in insurrection and rebellion and who have gone on strike against the constitution. Who have withheld and removed books, records, files from my County Clerk office."
The topic listed on the document is "overthrow of a Constitutional Public Office violation" and the investigation and injunction would be to "stop the overthrow of a Constitutional Public Office." The letterhead on the document displays, "Class, Rodney-Dale, Private Attorney General, 14th Amendment section 4, Constitutional Bounty Hunter" out of Cleveland, N.C.
The document is filed to the attention of Michigan Gov. Snyder; U.S. Attorney Mike Stuart (whose district covers West Virginia); David Gelios, the former head of the Detroit FBI; the U.S. Attorney's Office in Detroit, and President Donald Trump. Also listed are a number of county officials who it claims violated the constitution and are guilty of insurrection and rebellion and "are committing mutiny".
Spranger's long-suffering County Executive, Mark Hackel, appropriately labeled the filing as "gibberish."
The best possible outcome would be for Karen Spranger to get the help she obviously needs. It's also a cautionary tale of warning about making uninformed assumptions about what's best for a community, state - or country.
