One of the biggest names in the Democrat Party is in trouble.
If they go down it could affect the 2024 presidential election.
A key Democrat got caught hiding something from police in this growing scandal.
During the month of March, Michigan’s Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer ordered residents not to travel to Florida for spring break in order to supposedly “contain” the spread of the coronavirus.
But Whitmer turned out to be another Democrat Governor—like Andrew Cuomo and Gavin Newsom—who did not follow their own coronavirus lockdown rules.
From March 12 to the 15, Whitmer traveled to Florida to visit her ailing father.
This was in contradiction to Whitmer’s initial claim that she only spent two days in Florida.
Reporters demanded to know the details of this trip and if Whitmer used taxpayer money to fly to Florida in defiance of her own order.
In pursuit of this question, reporters uncovered another Whitmer lie.
Governor Whitmer did not fly commercial to Florida.
Instead, Whitmer tried to hide her trip by flying on a private plane owned by wealthy Michigan businessmen.
At a recent press conference, reporters pressed Whitmer for the truth about her trip, but Whitmer tried to maintain her cover-up.
“They say you went to Detroit businessmen to ask for their private plane to go to Florida to see your Dad. I wanted to give you the opportunity to respond to that report. Who paid for that trip when you went down to Florida,” a reporter asked Whitmer.
“I’ve said everything I’m going to say about my trip to go check on my father. It was a quick trip, it was an important family, uh, reason for doing it and I’ve got nothing to add,” Whitmer shot back.
The reporter tried once again to wring out an answer about the trip from Whitmer.
“This issue, governor, is your office has been very secretive about it. So the question is, why so secretive about it?” the reporter pressed a second time.
Whitmer claimed she needed to conceal the details of her trip out of fear for her safety.
“We don’t discuss my travel,” Whitmer responded. “I’ve received an incredible number of death threats over the last year and a half. There are a lot of reasons that we don’t discuss how I travel and when I travel and that’s all I’m going to say.”
This smelled like a lie.
When Whitmer traveled to Florida she never notified Florida law enforcement which would have been a natural step for the purposes of Whitmer’s personal security.
Whitmer traveling by private plane and refusing to notify Florida law enforcement she was in the state allowed Whitmer to travel to Florida without records of her travel.
What was she so desperate to hide?
