It’s been known for a while that Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer made a private trip to Florida in March.
But now it turns out the jet she used wasn’t approved as a chartered plane.
And that’s not the only problem with her story.
The private jet Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) said she chartered for her secret trip to Florida in March is not approved to be chartered, the FAA told the Detroit Free Press Monday.
The new problems arose when Whitmer’s chief of staff, Joanne Huls, attempted to explain away the flight Friday by saying a related 501(c)(4) so-called dark money group paid for the flight.
It was determined the cost of the roundtrip was $27,521, and Whitmer personally reimbursed the fund just $855 for her seat. It was not clear how they arrived at either figure.Breitbart News
So not only was the plane dodgy, but the funding of the trip was dodgy as well.
Even her reason for going on the trip doesn’t add up anymore.
Whitmer’s original story was that her trip was strictly “personal” to visit her ailing father, who owns a property in West Palm Beach.
“I’ve said everything I am going to say about my trip to go check on my father,” Whitmer told a 9&10 News journalist when questions persisted. “It was a quick trip. It was an important family reason for doing it. And I have nothing to add.”
“I showed up when I was needed. I did a lot of cooking, a lot of cleaning,” Whitmer said last week.
“When you’re the governor of Michigan, you’re always on the clock, but it does not mean that you’re not also a daughter who shows up when a family member needs her,” she said.
But late Friday, Whitmer’s office claimed her 501(c)(4) organization paid for the flight, which would require an organization-related activity to do so.Breitbart News
Just what was Whitmer doing in Florida?
If it wasn’t personal, why would she lie to people?
If it was personal, why would the money and flights for the trip be so shady?
All these questions need to be answered, and soon.
