Michigan attorney general will not charge county commissioner who displayed a gun during a virtual meeting
“I appreciate the community member who came forward to file this report, and I respect the conclusion reached by my office. I find Commissioner Clous’ action to be reprehensible and irresponsible, but not illegal,” Nessel said in a prepared statement. “While he will not face accountability in a court room, Commissioner Clous’ constituents have the power to make their opinions clear the next time he’s up for re-election.”
“I was going to chime in as well,” Clous said. “I was just going to show the rifle and show that I fully support the Second Amendment, but then I opted not to … I was in my home.”
Clous declined CNN’s request for comment. He is currently serving in his fourth term on the county commission.
