(AbsoluteNews.com) – Michigan has had one of the strictest COVID-19 lockdowns in the country. It’s so oppressive citizens have sued Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D) multiple times to have her order lifted. It seems, however, the governor’s husband didn’t get the memo.
Last week, Tad Dowker, owner of NorthShore Dock LLC, said the governor’s husband, Marc Mallory, called and asked the company to place his boat in the water before Memorial Day weekend. According to The Detroit News, there were Facebook posts on both the business page and Dowker’s making the claim, but neither one is any longer visible to the public. Fortunately, Twitter users captured a screenshot of one of the posts.

Whitmer’s office refused to respond to questions about the request for the boat. Republican lawmakers didn’t mind voicing their disgust though. In fact, state Sen. Tom Barrett (R) is now accusing the governor of making him part of a cover-up.
The senator posted on Facebook about Mallory’s desire to have his boat put in the water right after Whitmer warned Michiganders against flocking to Traverse City over the holiday. He criticized the governor for not following the rules she set forth. He took his posts down after the governor’s office asked him to remove it and denied the accusations.
Senator Barrett told The Hill that he was able to verify the account and now he feels as though the governor’s office has pulled him “into a cover-up.”
It’s pretty ironic that the governor and her husband told others to stay away from the area but then allegedly planned to travel there themselves. And although they own property in the area, they don’t live there right now, so they would have been “flocking there” like everyone else. Here we have another case of “Do as I say, not as I do.”
Not a good look for Whitmer.
You Deserve the Absolute Truth!
