Barry County Sheriff Dar Leaf has a connection with William Null — they were on the same stage at a Grand Rapids rally in May protesting Governor Whitmer’s stay-at-home order — and he says he has no regrets about being on the same platform as the man charged in a kidnapping plot.
Sheriff Leaf says he was “shocked” by the arrest and says he “did not see this coming” with Null … according to an interview he did with FOX 17 in West Michigan.
Leaf is downplaying the arrest, saying “it’s just a charge.” The Sheriff claims the men might not have been trying to kidnap Governor Whitmer, and instead might have been trying to arrest her for a felony … presumably her hardline on COVID regs.

Governor Whitmer called the 13 people arrested in the plot “sick and depraved,” but Sheriff Leaf insists the Null brothers are nice and respectful … and he says lots of people in his state are angry with the Governor and want her handcuffed and taken away.
Meanwhile, the Null brothers are being held on $250,000 bail and could face up to 22 years in prison if convicted.
