A pair of department clerks who worked while Land was in office were arrested in 2005 for accepting bribes for Michigan I.D.s., the Examiner also reported.

Michigan became "one of the easiest places" to get a fake I.D. during Land's time in office, according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent Brian Moskowitz in a 2004 Associated Press article highlighted by the Examiner.

"We saw an alarming amount of … cases where groups were bringing criminals or illegal aliens to Michigan for the sole purpose of obtaining a Michigan driver’s license," Moskowitz said in the article.
