A terrible number of awful scandals have crossed a huge legal threshold.
It could be a massive blow to the Democratic Party.
A top Democrat knows her whole career is on the line after this court ruling.
Michigan Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer has been caught breaking her own Covid regulations and suggestions on multiple occasions.
Just last week she was caught violating state-mandated coronavirus restrictions at a bar when she gathered around a large group of people.
“Michigan restaurants and bars are still subject to capacity limits and social distancing requirements,” the Detroit Free Press reported. “Current orders require six people or fewer at tables and distances of six feet between tables.”
A Michigan restaurant owner who was jailed for violating Covid restrictions blasted Whitmer for breaking her own rules.
Marlena Pavlos-Hackney, owner of Marlena’s Bistro and Pizzeria, was reportedly jailed for four nights and fined $15,000 just four months ago for refusing to follow Whitmer’s Covid regulations.
“Governor Whitmer is our servant. Her duty is to protect us,” Pavlos-Hackney said. “If I have to face all these penalties which I went through … I think she should face the same penalties.”
This scandal broke just days after it was discovered that Whitmer broke her own recommendation and traveled to Florida on a private jet. She claiming it was just to visit her father.
The people of Michigan are so unsatisfied with Whitmer that she’s facing a recall effort. The Michigan Court of Appeals gave the recall effort a huge win and it moves forward after affirming the Board of State Canvassers, which approved several recall petitions.
Local Detroit media reports that the court “affirmed the board’s approval of seven petitions, six seeking to recall Whitmer and one seeking to recall Lt. Gov. Garlin Gilchrist II. One additional recall petition was remanded to correct a ‘scrivener’s error’ in stating the date on which an order was issued.”
There are six recall petitions and five of them specifically object to Covid and the way Whitmer dealt with the crisis.
The court decision has not yet put the recall on the ballot. There’s still more work that needs to be done.
“The petitions do have a high bar to clear to get recalls approved. According to state law, the recall petitions would need more than one million signatures in 60 days,” the outlet noted Saturday. “In order for the petitions to go on the August ballot, they would have had to meet the deadline in April. It is unclear if they could end up on the November ballot, which is meant for local elections this year. That deadline is July 30.”
Whitmer is trying to claim that the court decision is a mere Republican plot.
