Governor Whitmer’s husband tried to use his position to flout COVID-19 boating restrictions

May 26, 2020

  Back in 2017 Chris Christie took quite a bit of heat–and rightfully so–when he closed the beaches in his State due to a government shutdown and then was spotted sunbathing with his family on a closed beach over the July 4th weekend. He let his political privilege show when he responded by saying “that’s just the way it goes, run for governor, and you can have a residence.”

  Fast-forward to 2020 and as the Memorial Day weekend approached millions of Americans remained in varying degrees of house arrest and have been for about two months. As tensions begin to flare and as patience grows shorter and people want their freedom of movement back we have been lectured over and over again about the importance of social conditioning and following the guidelines over the holiday weekend to remain safe.

  One of the States with the most restrictive regulations in place is Michigan and over this weekend it looks like the virtue signalling Governor has had her own Chris Christie moment. Or at least her husband did, but that is a negligible difference in my opinion, as he tried to use her name to flout the rules his wife put in place on boating. Here is more:

The owner of a Northern Michigan dock company says Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s husband wanted his boat placed in the water before the Memorial Day weekend as Whitmer urged residents not to rush to the region.

No longer visible to the public, Facebook posts from NorthShore Dock LLC and its owner, Tad Dowker, focused on what Dowker said was a request last week by Whitmer’s husband, Marc Mallory. The posts have drawn the attention of Republican state lawmakers, who said the Democratic governor’s family may not be following her guidance for the rest of the state.

“This morning, I was out working when the office called me, there was a gentleman on hold who wanted his boat in the water before the weekend,” Dowker posted. “Being Memorial weekend and the fact that we started working three weeks late means there is no chance this is going to happen.”

“Well our office personnel had explained this to the man and he replied, ‘I am the husband to the governor, will this make a difference?'”

  He tried to use his wife’s position to jump to the front of a line that was created by his wife in the first place. After two months of restricting the movement of Michigan residents you would like to think the First Family of the State of Michigan would step back and let their subjects take to the water first, but of course they could not resist and whether you like to admit it or not there is a ruling class in this country and they do not play by the same rules. Governor Whitmer, your privilege is showing…

      I expect to see more of this type of hypocrisy if the lock down doesn’t end soon and with the nice weather coming.
