It is hard to believe there isn't a thread specific to this topic given the massive amount of hypocrisy since last March. Given they just won't stop I think it appropriate for these wonderful politicians to have their own home thread.

Two stories on the same hypocrite. Thank you GOD he didn't kill a family driving home.


and

Michigan State Police pulled over a Michigan Democrat lawmaker for driving drunk. He threatened to call Gov. Whitmer on the spot...
The 911 calls came pouring in as the Democrat State Representative's black Chevy Tahoe sped down I-96. For almost 50 miles, the vehicle with the vanity plate “ELECTED” was driving so recklessly that at least one person saw him go the wrong way before rolling into a ditch.
When police arrived at the scene, according to MIRS news, Democrat State Rep. Jewell Jones and his unidentified female passenger were found with their pants down as the Tahoe remained in the ditch.
(WARNING - IT GETS GRAPHIC)
Jones was "holding the woman up" near the passenger side door, according to a police report obtained by MIRSnews. The woman's pants "were down" as she vomited and Jewell's pants "were partially down" when a paramedic arrived at the crash site.
Police engaged in a struggle with Jones, and at one point as Jones is on the ground struggling with multiple officers, he shouts: "Let me sit up, (N-Word)."
Meanwhile, the woman was "unable to stand on her own and was essentially unresponsive" as paramedics tried to administer care, the police report noted.
The paramedic told police that Jewell identified both himself and his passenger as "people of importance" and flashed his wallet badge, the report noted.When a state police trooper asked for Jones' identification, Jones refused, at one point prompting the trooper to tell Jones, "don't be dumb."
During their exchange, Jones responds "I can't do that" when asked again for his driver's license and ID.
At that point, the officers had had enough. They put their hands on Jones and wrestled him to the ground. Keep in mind a gun was also inside his car, reportedly in the cupholder.
Jones continued to resist and was brought to the ground by state troopers, who told him to "stop resisting."
This is when the Democrat threatened police, saying, "I'll call Governor Whitmer right now. He continued, "When I call Gretchen I need y'alls IDs and badges."
In addition to invoking Whitmer's name, Jones tells the troopers, "I'm not giving you my arm unless you shoot me. You shoot me, I'll get up," according to the police report obtained by MIRS news.
Officers do get Jones into handcuffs and he is eventually placed in the back of a Livingston County sheriff's deputy's vehicle, although video shows he resisted that request, as well. He was eventually transported to the county jail, where he was held overnight.
The level of hypocrisy by Democrats here in Michigan is stunning. Their mantra is, "it's rules for thee, but not for me."
This Democrat put thousands of families at risk by driving extremely drunk on a busy interstate between Lansing and Detroit. Will this be covered fairly? There are still so many questions that must be answered.
QUESTION: Why hasn't Gov. Whitmer come out in support for law enforcement, particularly the Michigan State Police?
Leaders lead, they don't hide, and Gov. Whitmer is hiding.

They may have been fully engaged at 100 mph when they went off the road. We now find them looking for their pants.

So drunk they had no idea they were running vehicles off the road and after crashing he decided to hold a passed out woman against the truck and try to copulate on the side of the road.

By the way..... it was light out.

This man has oversight over the Michigan State Police budget.

LeDuff: Come Clean Gov. Whitmer -- Who Flew From Michigan To Florida With You?​

123_1_48774.jpeg

Gretchen Whitmer
Come clean, Madam Governor. Tell the people who was on that plane with you. Tell them, Madam, or I may have to.

Your folks claim the luxury private jet you flew to Florida in March was "chartered" and paid for by your million-dollar political fund. They claim you simply purchased a hitchhiker's seat for $855.

Your crack team of communicators claim that your fund, Michigan Transition 2019, set up for the transition of power and to promote "civic action and social welfare," was using the plane for official business when you tagged along to Florida.

What business? No expenses are filed for any type of business except for the flight. Were the fund's executives on the plane with you? The fund's director– a union lobbyist – could not be reached for comment. Nor its treasurer – a former power company executive. Nor its secretary – a professor of legal ethics, of all things.


Were they on the plane? That's not what I've heard. Is it true?

You may be in hot water with the Internal Revenue Service if no one affiliated with the fund was using the jet for legitimate political purposes. Your problems with the public may be worse. You told them you took a personal trip as a dutiful daughter. So who else was on the Gulfstream G280?

Now comes a clever piece of reporting by Paul Egan of the Detroit Free Press, who reveals that the wealthy businessmen who own the jet plane through a limited liability company are not licensed to charter out aircraft for passenger use, though Whitmers handlers claim that's just what they did.

Rich Men and Their Toys

That's because they didn't. Rich men don't rent out their toys. They let you use it because you asked to use it. That's what they told me.

How could they say no? You have them over a barrel. They've got business with the state. And you of course, have the power to shut down the state.

Featured_gulfstream_g280_48736

Gulfstream G280, the model Whitmer hitched a ride on March 12 and 15.
That group of businessmen could be in hot water with the Federal Aviation Administration because of reports the plane was chartered -- and they're not happy. So come clean, Madam Governor. Own up to it. Don't stick someone else with your self-made mess.

The trip was two months ago, but you and your slush fund are only paying now? And well under market value, for that matter. Your crack team of pillow fluffers claim you paid for the ride just as soon as you got the bill.

Funny. No check had been cut when I started asking around earlier this month. And you've produced no proof that an actual check has been cashed. You're the governor and it's the public's right to know.

And let's take a look at that slush fund. It is a 501c4, the kind of political nonprofit that got former Gov. Rick Snyder into hot water for secrecy and landed former Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick in federal prison for corruption.

The Michigan Transition fund was set up in 2018 to help finance the change to the Whitmer/Gilchrist administration.

In March 2019 – two months after the inauguration – it had balance of $1,526,100. So it's strange that a fund set up for transitioning to the new gubernatorial administration would take in contributions totaling $246,873 from March 1, 2019 to April 30, 2021.

Corporate Fat Cats

Donations came from a who's who of corporate fat cats:

  • $50,000 from Chemical Bank
  • $50,000 from A Stronger Financial Michigan, a Political Action Committee linked to the Michigan Credit Union League
  • The Michigan Association of CPAs chipped in $12,500
  • Three communications companies: Comcast and Charter Communications gave $10,000 each, topped by $25,000 from AT&T which contributed $25,000.
Not to be outdone, Charter contributed an additional $25,000 in September of 2020. That contribution, along with $50,000 from the Michigan Credit Union League in July, comprise the entirety of the contributions for all of 2020.

Contributions had dried up until this month, when Gretchen Whitmer contributed $855 to the fund for her plane rides March 12 and 15 from Lansing to West Palm Beach, where her elderly father has a winter home.

In total: expenditures for the fund exceeded $1 million from March 1, 2019 to April 30, 2021.

For what? Among those expenditures, "office administration" totaled $412,360.96. That's a lot of paper clips. Consulting fees totaled $209,605, but no consultants are named.

Then there was a single "gift" in January 2021 in the amount of $20,799. There is no indication who got that gift.

You may recall that Whitmer and her daughters in January attended the Biden inauguration. The governor has not disclosed how she traveled to D.C. or how that travel was paid for.

Then in May, the fund paid $27,521 for that private jet to West Palm Beach.Oddly, there no accompanying expenses listed for May 2021. No hotels. No meals. No events fees. Just $43.96 for "office administration."

And then there is the $5,000 paid for travel in July of 2020, in the middle of a pandemic. Who traveled, and for what purpose, remains a mystery.

Campaign law says you cannot set up a fund for altruistic purposes, invite corporate donors to make tax-deductible contributions, then appropriate those dollars for personal use outside of the purpose of the nonprofit.

So tell us governor: Who was on the nine-seat plane?

Didn't Whitmer sign some kind of executive order or directive to create some kind of healthy climate plan? If so, I'm guessing that it wasn't meant for her because it doesn't look like she was at all concerned about her own carbon footprint.

Whitmer does it again. I had to laugh at her excuse that she didn't stop to think about the very regulations that she is responsible for setting:

"Yesterday, I went with friends to a local restaurant," Whitmer said in a statement obtained by the paper. "As more people arrived, the tables were pushed together. Because we were all vaccinated, we didn’t stop to think about it. In retrospect, I should have thought about it. I am human. I made a mistake, and I apologize."

Not bad for a crook who is made his entire career living off the public teet and a public education teacher salary.
Must be some kind of special rules for politicians and their “finances“.
