Defeating COVID-19 is an all hands on deck moment for our state, and I remain hopeful that Republicans in the legislature will stop the partisan games and start working with me to re-engage our economy safely and responsibly.”   Read the full article here.

Desperate Schuette Doubles Down on Shameful Nassar Attack Ad - Gretchen Whitmer for GovernorSkip to content Stand with Michigan against hate. CONTRIBUTE TODAY! X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE POSTED ON SEPTEMBER 21, 2018 BY ADAM FOX-LONG Desperate Schuette Doubles Down on Shameful Nassar Attack Ad Chief Dunlap: “worked closely with Whitmer’s office… to achieve the best possible outcome for the survivors of Larry Nassar.” LANSING — Today former Ingham County Prosecutor Gretchen Whitmer stood with Michigan sheriffs, prosecutors, and Nassar survivors to set the record straight regarding her role in the Larry Nassar case. Schuette responded at a press conference [DATE REMOVED] doubling down on the Michigan Republican Party’s repugnant ad attacking Whitmer, a rape survivor, for her role in bringing Larry Nassar to justice. Today MSU Chief of Police James Dunlap told the Detroit News that he worked closely with Whitmer to help deliver the best possible outcome for the survivors. As Prosecutor, Whitmer got the warrants that ultimately brought the first [DATE REMOVED] sentence against Larry Nassar. “Not only is Bill Schuette spreading lies about Gretchen’s long record as a fighter for survivors, but he refuses to condemn the Michigan Republican Party for their disgusting ad,” said Nassar survivor Jane Katzer. “Now, my family and I have to worry every time we turn on the TV or open a web browser that we’re going to see the face of the man who abused me. Bill Schuette is a lowlife who would lie to distort a sexual assault survivor’s record on sexual assault in order to try and win an election. He needs to stop playing politics and demand that the Michigan Republican Party take this repulsive ad down.” FACT: Nassar’s crimes took place in multiple jurisdictions “Both Whitmer and Schuette have said publicly that because the sex crimes were committed in multiple jurisdictions, the state Attorney General’s Office was the right office to handle their prosecution.” –Bridge Truth Squad FACT: MSU Chief Dunlap told the Detroit News today he “worked closely with Whitmer’s office… to achieve the best possible outcome for the survivors of Larry Nassar.” Today MSU Police Chief Jim Dunlap told the Detroit News “his department worked closely with Whitmer’s office, Schuette’s office and the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Western District of Michigan, which handled the federal charges. ‘Those efforts were meant to achieve the best possible outcome for the survivors of Larry Nassar,’ Dunlap said in a statement, ‘and by all objective accounts those efforts were successful.’” FACT: Ingham County Prosecutor’s office did not receive detailed police reports “Lisa McCormick, chief assistant prosecutor for Ingham County, confirmed Whitmer’s account of events to Truth Squad. McCormick said the office never received police reports, warrant requests or witness lists from MSU’s police department that would have allowed county prosecutors to determine appropriate charges. ‘There is no way for a prosecutor to charge someone without the warrant request, the witness list and the police report,” she said, adding: “It would be unethical to do otherwise.’” –Bridge Truth Squad FACT: Whitmer told Dunlap “we share the dual goal of protecting the victim and ensuring we are successful in getting maximum penalty for the defendant.” “In [DATE REMOVED] email exchange between Whitmer and Dunlap, first requested under Michigan’s Freedom of Information Act by Gongwer News Service, and provided to Truth Squad, Whitmer told the chief her office was ‘eager to read any and all police reports you send our way. I believe we share the dual goals of protecting the victim and ensuring we are successful in getting the maximum penalty for the defendant,’ she wrote on [DATE REMOVED]. ‘And while I understand your desire to make an arrest as soon as possible, I hope you understand that we think it is important to flesh out the issues in the case now that the (U.S. attorney’s office) is involved.’” –Bridge Truth Squad # # # Share this post: Share Tweet Email Post navigation  Previous Post Law Enforcement, Prosecutors, Nassar Survivors Call on Schuette to Denounce Shameful GOP Attack Ad Next Post   VIDEO: Schuette Refuses Three Times to Pull Repulsive Nassar Attack Ad Meet Gretchen Meet Garlin Issues News Volunteer Events Media Store Donate JOIN GRETCHEN Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube Medium P.O.

X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE POSTED ON NOVEMBER 1, 2018 BY ADAM FOX-LONG Former President Barack Obama Urges Michigan Voters to Support Gretchen Whitmer in New Radio Ad DETROIT — Today the Whitmer for Governor campaign began airing a radio ad featuring former President Barack Obama. The 60-second ad focuses on Whitmer’s work as Senate Democratic Leader to expand Medicaid to more than 680,000 Michiganders and her plans to clean up our drinking water and improve education and skills training. “I’m so proud to have the support of President Obama because this election is so crucial for Michiganders,” said Whitmer. “Health care is on the ballot this November. Clean drinking water and good schools for our kids are on the ballot. It’s so important that everyone gets out and votes so we can start solving problems for the people of our state. Let’s get it done.” “Gretchen Whitmer is keeping her foot on the gas and doing everything she can to turn out voters and help elect Democrats up and down the ballot,” said Whitmer for Governor Deputy Communications Director Eileen Belden. “Meanwhile, Republicans are abandoning Bill Schuette left and right, and his campaign has cancelled ad buys across the state as Michiganders reject his record of trying to rip health care away from hundreds of thousands of people.” CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO THE AD AD SCRIPT: PRESIDENT OBAMA: “This is Barack Obama. In this election, the health of millions is on the ballot. The character of our country is on the ballot. And your vote can make the difference. As Senate Leader, Gretchen Whitmer worked to raise the minimum wage and expand Medicaid so that 680,000 people now have health care. That’s huge. Gretchen believes, like I do, that every child deserves a good school and safe water to drink. And she has a plan to give people the skills and training they need to get good jobs, starting in high school. You’re not going to have to wonder if she’ll protect your health care or fight for good jobs, good wages, and good schools. She’s proven that she will. Gretchen never gives up. So make a plan for Tuesday, November 6th and take some friends with you to vote for Gretchen Whitmer. Let’s bring it home, Michigan.” NARRATOR: “Find your polling place and vote November 6th between 7am and 8pm.

Whitmer on tough first year: ‘I did what I said I was going to’ LANSING –  She’s the popular “fix the damn roads” candidate whose roads plan crashed and burned at the Capitol. A former legislator who clashed with lawmakers. A rising star in national Democratic politics bogged down by political infighting in her own state. Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s first year in office was, in many ways, defined by another first: The state’s first period of divided government [DATE REMOVED]. The Republican-led Legislature blocked some of the Democratic governor’s top priorities, fought back when Whitmer flexed her muscle with executive authority, called her names and refused to let her drive the agenda in a state they were both elected to lead.   Read the full article here.
