“This was a cowardly assault by professional protestors whose car license plates mostly appeared to be from out of state,” Schuette spokeswoman Andrea Bitely said in a statement. “However, the source of the attackers is currently unknown.”
Schuette’s wife, Cythnia, reported the protesters poured oil-like substance on the driveway “seemingly to simulate spilled oil related to the oil pipeline issue in the Straits of Mackinac,” Bitely said.
Schuette has been part of a review of Enbridge Energy’s 63-year-old Line 5 oil pipeline in the Straits of Mackinac.
