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.

Serving our Veterans - Gretchen Whitmer for GovernorSkip to content Stand with Michigan against hate. CONTRIBUTE TODAY! X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE Serving our Veterans HOME ISSUES SERVING OUR VETERANS We should be ashamed when the men and women who stepped up to serve our nation are forced to wait months for the care they earned, or face homelessness when they return home. I have a long record fighting for Michigan’s 700,000 men and women in uniform whose sacrifices keep us safe, and I’ll hold government accountable for the lack of respect for our veterans that led to incompetence, neglect, and tragedy at the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans. As governor, I will honor our men and women who served in uniform by: Engaging Valuable Veteran Experience. We must capitalize on the dedicated talent that our veterans have to offer and close the skills gap by working with the US Department of Labor to increase the number of occupations with eligible apprenticeships and leverage federal funding to do this through the GI Bill. We will work with the National Guard to coordinate training to align with occupational skills and require every state agency to be a veteran friendly employer. We will help build careers for veterans and match qualified vets to many of Michigan’s need-to-fill positions. Putting training to work because the men and women who bravely defend our country have every right to serve their families and communities with honor and earn a good living. We owe our veterans every opportunity, and must connect them to the paths that lead to good-paying jobs when they return home. Let’s get veterans back into the workforce, help them find jobs, fast-track certification programs, and reduce barriers to opening a business. Improving care by putting our veterans ahead of politics to make sure they get the benefits and medical care they deserve, including mental health services, addiction care, and counseling. One veteran suicide is too many, and we must do better for our servicemen and women who face the difficult transition of returning home. Michigan has let our veterans down in Grand Rapids, where trained nurses were replaced by a private contractor, leading to the neglect and abuse of our veterans. As Governor, I’ll work across party lines to get more medical staff in veterans homes, increase oversight for service providers, and end the privatization of services for our veterans that led to tragedy. Returning home should not mean housing uncertainty for our nation’s heroes. I will work with our state housing agency and Michigan banks to help veterans take maximum advantage of VA home mortgage loans, especially in our urban communities.
