Michigan Governor Under Fire After Husband Attempts to Violate State’s Lockdown Rules
Apparently, Gretchen Whitmer’s lockdown laws, possibly the most draconian in the country, don’t apply to her own family.
According to the Daily Wire:
On May 18, Whitmer announced that some lockdown restrictions would be lifted before Memorial Day weekend, allowing state residents to visit parks and lakes once again. But Whitmer warned: “If you don’t live in these regions … think long and hard before you take a trip into them.”
“A small spike could put the hospital system in dire straits pretty quickly. That’s precisely why we’re asking everyone to continue doing their part. Don’t descend on [waterfront] Traverse City from all regions of the state,” the Democratic governor said.
But the Detroit News reported Monday that a Michigan marina owner wrote a Facebook post claiming the Democrat governor’s husband, Marc Mallory, had called on May 21st to ask the marina to put their boat into the water before Memorial Day:
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.
Dowker wrote in the Facebook post, “This morning, I was out working when the office called me, there was a gentleman on hold who wanted his boat in the water before the weekend. Being Memorial weekend and the fact that we started working three weeks late means there is no chance this is going to happen.”
“Well our office personnel had explained this to the man and he replied, ‘I am the husband to the governor, will this make a difference?’”
The Daily Wire further notes that Whitmer and her husband own a property in Elks Rapid, near Traverse City, about a three-hour drive from the governor’s mansion in Lansing.
Leftists think their laws only apply to you because they think they’re better than you. Never forget it.
