VIDEO: Schuette Refuses Three Times to Pull Repulsive 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 VIDEO: Schuette Refuses Three Times to Pull Repulsive Nassar Attack Ad LANSING — Today Gretchen Whitmer issued the following statement after Bill Schuette held a press conference in which he repeatedly refused to answer calls from Nassar survivors demanding that the Michigan Republican Party pull the ad. Watch the video clip from the Detroit News here. “Three times. Bill Schuette was asked three times if he would heed the call of Nassar survivors to pull this repulsive ad, and he refused to give a straight answer three times,” said Whitmer. “The survivors and their families shouldn’t have to see Larry Nassar over and over again. Bill, how low are you willing to stoop to advance your political career? Have you no decency? It’s time for you to do the right thing and get this ad off their air. It’s a lie, and you know it. The people of Michigan deserve a governor who has integrity and tells the truth, not a craven career politician who will say anything to get elected.” TRANSCRIPT: Jonathan Oosting [Detroit News]: How do you know that, Attorney General? That Gretchen Whitmer didn’t – “Refused” as this ad says. It says she refused to prosecute. Do you know for a fact? Bill Schuette: Listen, I haven’t seen the ad. I was in Ionia County [DATE REMOVED] by eight-o’clock. I had a whole bunch of stuff throughout the day. I’m here to set the record straight about the prosecution of Larry Nassar and the fact is we received this case from the Michigan State University Police Department. And set the record straight as we brought charges, made the decision, she chose not to. I think that was wrong. And leadership is about making the right decisions. Jonathan Oosting: Several Nassar victims today joined Gretchen Whitmer at her press conference, including Grace French. She said politely and respectfully, Mr. Schuette: I ask the Michigan Republican Party to take down an ad that features the face of my abuser. How do you respond to those victims? Bill Schuette: You know again, this is about my record. This discussion we’re having here today. And it’s about the record of Senator Whitmer and making decisions. I made a decision to charge Larry Nassar. And now he’s behind bars for the rest of his life. Jonathan Oosting: So you have no response to the victims? Bill Schuette: I have not seen any… Jonathan Oosting: But you’ve heard what the victims said. You just quoted my story, so you read it… Bill Schuette: Any instance of sexual assault is horrific. And every and every victim of sexual assault deserves justice. That’s my response. # # # Share this post: Share Tweet Email Post navigation  Previous Post Desperate Schuette Doubles Down on Shameful Nassar Attack Ad Next Post   New Group of ‘Business Leaders for Whitmer’ Forms to Help Elect Gretchen Whitmer as Michigan’s Next Governor Meet Gretchen Meet Garlin Issues News Volunteer Events Media Store Donate JOIN GRETCHEN Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube Medium P.O.

Fighting Urban Poverty - Gretchen Whitmer for GovernorSkip to content Stand with Michigan against hate. CONTRIBUTE TODAY! X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE Fighting Urban Poverty HOME ISSUES FIGHTING URBAN POVERTY Michigan used to be the place people flocked to for opportunity. Our cities were bustling with jobs and growing rapidly. This was the state families of varying races, nationalities and religions packed up and moved to because they knew the jobs that were available paid fair wages – regardless of the color of your skin. This was the place where automaking jobs provided a ladder up into the middle class for thousands of Michigan families, where you could earn enough to raise a family and buy the car you built at the factory. Michigan built the middle-class and created pathways to opportunity for people of all ethnicities who couldn’t find them elsewhere. But today Michigan cities are struggling. Municipalities across the state have suffered from drastic population loss, severe cuts in state funding for essential services, economic development that fails to reach residential neighborhoods, and a state government that values profits over people – particularly in communities of color. Many families living in Michigan cities today are struggling just to get by, much less get ahead. In 2017, Wayne County Executive Warren Evans and I joined leaders from urban communities across the state in an Urban Listening Tour. Too many candidates talk about issues they don’t understand without taking the time to have meaningful conversations with real people. After touring the state and hearing directly from people who face these challenges every day, I have a deeper understanding of the policies our state needs to revitalize our cities, embrace our diversity as a strength and get things done that will help fight urban poverty. Solving these problems will require a strong partnership with state, local and community leaders. As governor, I am committed to bringing people together to build strong, vibrant and healthy communities across the state, so we can build a better Michigan for everyone.
