Michigan village official uses YouTube to hit hometown graft (with video)

Marc Boyer, from a July 22 YouTube video he postedMarc Boyer, a village council trustee from Vicksburg, Michigan, has posted nine YouTube videos during the past month, in which he accuses current and former village officials with corruption.

His YouTube channel, Spreading Fairness, has attracted more than 3,000 views. About 2,900 people live in Vicksburg.

Among Boyer’s targets are most of the elected and appointed village leaders and the police department.

Village manager Matt Crawford was recently charged with two counts of felony embezzlement, according to a report about Boyer by MLive.

Boyer said he made the YouTube videos to protect himself from retribution by the local police.

“His fellow Village Council members and village officials say Boyer is wrong about his accusations, does not speak for the village and is rehashing old issues that were resolved years ago,” MLive said. “In some cases, they said, he is bordering on slander.”

Boyer doesn’t plan to seek reelection in November.

Here’s one of his videos.
