Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has been under fire for weeks now, as her allegedly “draconian” lockdown measures have drawn repeated protests by the people of the Wolverine State.
Whitmer, a Democrat, has applied a wildly authoritarian slant to her coronavirus precautions by not only imposing a restrictions on what businesses are allowed to be open, but also by limiting what goods or services those businesses can provide even if they are operating. In big box retailers such as Walmart, this meant that “non essential” items would not be available for purchase, cordoned off by yellow caution type on an aisle-by-aisle basis.
When Michiganders noticed that items such as vegetable seeds and children’s car seats were being deemed “non essential”, all hell broke lose and a number of massive protests ensued.
And if you thought that was bad, just wait until you get a load of this:
The Detroit News reported Monday that Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s (D) husband exploited her position to urge a dock company to put his boat in the water before Memorial Day weekend, despite strict coronavirus guidelines.
The paper reported:
The owner of a Northern Michigan dock company says Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s husband wanted his boat placed in the water before the Memorial Day weekend as Whitmer urged residents not to rush to the region.
No longer visible to the public, Facebook posts from NorthShore Dock LLC and its owner, Tad Dowker, focused on what Dowker said was a request last week by Whitmer’s husband, Marc Mallory. The posts have drawn the attention of Republican state lawmakers, who said the Democratic governor’s family may not be following her guidance for the rest of the state.
Whitmer’s spokeswoman, Tiffany Brown, didn’t confirm or deny Monday the assertions by the marina company or its owner. Brown said the administration wouldn’t address “every rumor that is spread online.”
The news comes as Whitmer continues to be considered as a possible running mate for presumptive 2020 Democratic nominee Joe Biden.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
