The Detroit News: “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.”

  • Tad Dowker, NorthShore Dock LLC: “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… 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?’

Anna Palmer & Jake Sherman, Politico: “Dude! … Your wife is the governor of the state and is in the mix to be the vice president of the United States. And you’re trying to strongarm a boat dock operator in the middle of a deadly pandemic when your wife — again, the governor! — has been the face of stay-at-home-stay-safe talk?”

Gretchen Whitmer’s husband urged a business to get his boat in the water in time for Memorial Day weekend, according to social media posts, while she was publicly telling cooped-up residents to resist flocking to popular vacation areas during the coronavirus pandemic.”
