Ed Sienkiewicz is a councilman in Wolverine Lake, Michigan. Ed gets mad at people using the public lake access road by his house. A couple of years back, a local reporter put together this funny sting, getting secret-camera footage of Ed's bullshit—and the modifications made to the public area to make it as uninviting as possible.
Fox 2 Detroit:
Kassie lives a few houses down from the lake. She says Ed has been keeping her and her nieghbors out of the water using intimidation and dirty tricks. His latest is a barrier of cat tails in the water.
"This has been going on for years and he'll create one obstacle after another after another to make sure people don't go down there," Kassie said.
Another neighbor, Pete, has been feuding with Ed for 30 years. He says Ed has parked his work vehicles to block him off the lake, planted trees, and even placed rocks in the water. Ed's antics have raised some eyebrows on the council, but somehow, Mr. Councilman always seems to come out on top.
Following Fox's report, Sienkiewicz reportedly had some thoughts of his own, but they have sadly been taken offline. He was reportedly censured by his fellow councilors shortly thereafter. He remains a councilor in 2018, according to the village's website.
