Whitmer Wednesday: The Whitmer Administration Proclivity To Overreach On The Law

June 29 2022

There Is Now A Pattern Of Whitmer, Nessel And Benson Having To Be Restrained By Courts

“While Democrats like Gretchen Whitmer, Dana Nessel, and Jocelyn Benson tell anyone who will listen that they are so-called defenders of democracy, their actions tell a different story,” said Gustavo Portela, MIGOP Deputy Chief of Staff and Communications Director. “Each of them have weaponized their offices to attack not only political enemies, but small business owners, working Michiganders and religious charities only to be rebuked by the courts. This November, we will start fresh with a blank slate as voters fire Whitmer, Nessel and Benson permanently and usher in a new era of Republican leadership.”

Gretchen Whitmer 

Dana Nessel

  • In June 2022, the state Supreme Court found that Dana Nessel exceeded her authority in using a century-old, rarely used law to indict former governor Rick Snyder and therefore dismissed the charges against him.
    • Nessel fired the special prosecutor when she took office and improperly used the one-person grand jury procedure tactic to persecute a political rival.
  • In June 2020, the state Supreme Court ruled that Nessel improperly suspended an Owosso barber’s license to operate while enforcing later-to-be-determined unconstitutional COVID-19 lockdown orders.
  • In September 2019, a federal judge ruled that Nessel’s agenda to push forced adoptions to gay couples on Catholic Charities was unconstitutional.
    • Nessel was admonished by a judge who accused Nessel of “a targeted attack on a sincerely held religious belief.”
