Tucker Carlson closed out his show last night to give an update on Marlena Pavlos-Hackney, a restaurant owner who was recently on his show. Pavlos-Hackney had come under fire from the state for not requiring the use of masks or social distancing in her restaurant. Many restaurants have complained that current occupancy restrictions make it impossible for them to operate profitably.
After appearing on the show, Pavlos-Hackney was arrested and was only released after paying a $15,000 fine and having her restaurant closed. The state says that she’ll be locked up again if she tries to re-open the restaurant.
The timing wasn’t a coincidence.
Tucker covered her arrest on the 20th, noting that Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel issued a press release bragging about the arrest. And last night, he provided new details, alleging that Nessel herself had a role in the arrest.
Dana Nessel is out of control. She is an ideologue, she cares only about partisan advantage. She should be impeached by the Michigan legislature for her many abuses of power. She’s that corrupt. But she’s also a bit of a dim bulb. Not a super genius. That’s why, when she was asked why she put Marlena Pavlos-Hackney in jail, Nessel actually admitted the real reason. She didn’t make up some fake legal principle.
She said straightforwardly that Marlena Pavlos-Hackney had dared to come on this show at 8:00 PM and complain about her. That’s no longer allowed. To compound the offense, Pavlos-Hackney tried to raise money for her own legal defense. That, too, is now a crime in Dana Nessel’s Michigan.
Sound like America to you? No it doesn’t. It sounds like dictatorship. Dana Nessel is a threat to the rule of law, the law that she charged with enforcing and she should be removed immediately.
