Michigan GOP Moves To Hold Gov Whitmer To Account, Files A Complaint Saying She Broke Campaign Finance Laws

The Michigan Republican Party moved to hold Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to account after her egregious behavior has turned off even some on the left. Whitmer got exposed as just another hypocritical Dem politician who believes in ‘rules for thee but not for me’ proving it with her handling of the pandemic.

The Michigan GOP officially filed a complaint against Whitmer claiming she broke campaign finance laws by traveling to Florida on a private jet to visit her relative and against her own pandemic rules. The complaint demands Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson immediately open an investigation into Whitmer’s trip to West Palm Beach, Florida.

The Michigan GOP also sent the complaint to the Bureau of Elections to put them on notice that it doesn’t matter who paid for the private jet, Whitmer still violated the Michigan Campaign Finance Act.

The complaint says:

“This Complaint outlines numerous violations of the Michigan Campaign Finance Act arising from Governor Whitmer’s secret four day luxury jet trip to West Palm Beach, Florida between March 12 and March 15, 2021. Specifically, the facts indicate that the Governor used a private Gulfstream jet, provided by a corporation (PVS Chemicals), for a personal trip to visit her father.”

“Whitmer team’s most recent position is that the luxury jet costs will either be paid for by the corporation or Gretchen Whitmer for Governor.

“Regardless of which entity pays for the trip, a clear violation of the finance law has occurred that should immediately be investigated and penalized to deter future continued illegal activity by Respondents.

“There is no other individual or organization who should have paid for the Governor’s luxury personal travel to Florida except for Governor Whitmer herself.

“Now, Governor Whitmer and her Campaign are desperately attempting to convolute Michigan campaign finance law in order to justify paying for the Governor’s personal travel. 

“Regardless of the Governor’s purported safety concerns with traveling commercially, these concerns should not be used to legalize clear violations of the law,” the complaint continued.

“We ask that the Secretary of State immediately investigate this conduct and penalize all responsible parties to the fullest extent of the law,” the complaint says.
