The Democrat Governor of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer appeared to stumble and panic when she was grilled over a scandal involving Coronavirus relief funds being awarded to Democrat organizations.

As The Daily Wire reports:

Michigan Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer struggled to defend her administration on Wednesday when she was grilled over a scandal involving who was responsible for awarding taxpayer-funded coronavirus relief money to Democrat organizations and operatives.

Whitmer rushed to cancel the contracts on Tuesday after information surfaced online about who the entities were who were going to receive the funds.

When asked during a press conference on Wednesday about who was responsible for selecting the partisan organizations, Whitmer refused to answer and had to repeatedly look down at her notes.

“When it was brought to my attention, I told them to cancel it,” Whitmer claimed. “This was an unnecessary distraction. Leadership is about solving problems. The correct process was not followed.”

The Washington Free Beacon originally broke the stunning story about Whitmer’s Administration’s attempt to funnel federal relief funds to Democratic organizations.

In addition to the contract scandal Whitmer, who was formerly a raising star in the Democrat party, is now facing mounting criticism and citizen revolts over her draconian lockdown policies.

Wow these democrats are so full of themselves.God help Michigan and this money will never be utilized for the people who need it.This money will disappear into her and other democrats who have stolen and live a life outside of main America. Scary and yet sad that these people were voted in .God help America and God help President Trump.

Charges of corruption and misuse of authority should have been filed already. No, she got away with it. Just like Hillary got away with thousands of crimes, stealing millions and billions and the deaths of over 200 from Arkancide.

Add to that they have no shame! And just another thing they DO NOT care about the country or WE the people. ITS all about the party! MOTTO POWER MONEY GREED CONTROL with them any way possible in control! Of course with the NWO. They seem to thonk that will keep them in charge. I may be old and as the saying goes “OVER MY DEAD BODY” I believe there are many REAL Americans that feel the same way. Down with the squad, nasty, max, and all the other trouble makers.

You are so right! I would like to add another accomplice (actual a group), the main street media!!! Why not try to get away with it when you have the media covering for you?! The latest Biden scandal is just another example. I would like to think this would wake up the democrats who think because they are registered democrats they have to be loyal to the party.

A little to crude for social media but I do understand your contempt for those that are elected to serve the people and then help themselves instead. What I find hard to understand is the people who actually vote these crooked vermin into office. Are they that ignorant, that misinformed, or simply don’t care ? If you dance with the pigs your just as dirty as they are,

Keith C. ~ They don’t have to vote, as long as they have one ballot they can scan it until the fool wins. Oh, and then, everyone will just ignore the videos of the scanning. I am up to my eyes with all their antics. I still cannot believe that NOT ONE judge would step up to at least hear the cases of obvious fraud. This is just wrong on every level.

We need to be glad that Trump is leading us as an American nation that has been trampled over by tons of politicians for years! Trump showing what true American value is worth makes me proud and has woke, I believe more Americans than the left can imagine. With the lord all is possible and he will raise up one to push many in the way of truth and I cant help but believe Trump is the one that the lord has given us to lead us back to the ways in which we the people have the power to run this nation not the hacks that only want gain for themselves.

Agree 100% Chris!! The same old people stay in Congress! And I know people, including myself, who have coontinued to sign for Term Limits from Congress members and nothing happens! Rand Paul sent me several Term Limits Petitions but guess has not been initiated! I’ve signed three. Pelosi and gang corrupt, conniving thieves, crooked and lie 24/7! Like the last democrat that died it seems they all have to pass away to leave Congress! We’ve always tried to vote them out! But like Obama, Hillary, Biden and others seem to stay in office even though we’ve never heard of anyone getting out of Congress!! Who is continuing to keep them in Congress!? There are millions of Americans that say they did not vote for them!! Voter fraud‼️⁉️ Most people agree!! From the Clinton’s, both Bush traitors, Obama and others sold out their own country! Sold out to Globalist, New World Order, etc. we all knew what Bush Sr meant by New World Order! There are a lot that need to be voted out! They’re going to stay in for the money until they die! I know a few from Texas and they are not that way! I know one personally that is a good Christian person and does the right things! Texans voting for Trump and the good people who do their jobs! The demorats do nothing and are corrupt BUT ONE DAY WE ALL WILL ANSWER ON JUDGEMENT DAY‼️ When Jesus comes back the whole world at once will see Him from every country! Be right in your soul, be saved and follow…..

I agree with all you said,but please don’t throw the baby out with the bath water. Term limits is a huge mistake! It makes for a lazy electorate and we NEED A WELL INFORMED ACTIVE INTELLIGENT ELECTORATE! The corrupt powers will always be their even after term limits are in place. Term limits will only limit US from keepin and maintaining honest Patriots! Freedom is not free and requires diligence!

I have gone back and forth on term limits, however, one only needs to look at California and what happened to the State after term limits were implemented. The politicians were no longer worried about getting re-elected so they would pass laws that wouldn’t take effect until they were termed out of office and didn’t have to answer for them.
If you look at California before this, you will noticed most of the governor’s were moderate republican’s. After term limits the governors have been all democrats. I am not saying California was “conservative”, but it was far more to the center prior to term limits than after. Just an observation.

Get involved with Convention of the States. The agenda is term limits. We need 3/5 of states to sign on. Getting closer each month to having enough stagnates involved. This is our CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT, our safeguard when the elected do not do the bidding of the people. Caveat here, at least the bidding of those who revere and love our country it’s constitution and our FREEDOMS. excluded from this any state who supports Marxism which would be a Michigan at this point in time.

It’s just like Trump, keeping the “stimulus” for himself and cronies. I was assured I would get mine April 28th. Trump lied (what else is new). My bank has received neither hide nor hair of any direct deposit. There will be no “round two” because the pentagon isn’t getting their share. Neither is Jared.
