Law Enforcement, Prosecutors, Nassar Survivors Call on Schuette to Denounce Shameful GOP 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 Law Enforcement, Prosecutors, Nassar Survivors Call on Schuette to Denounce Shameful GOP Attack Ad Whitmer Took Swift Action to Put Nassar Behind Bars LANSING – Michigan sheriffs, prosecutors, and sexual assault survivors are blasting a new attack ad from the Michigan Republican Party. The sleazy new TV ad falsely attacks Gretchen Whitmer for her role in the Larry Nassar case. “I want to be crystal clear: this ad is a lie, plain and simple. I know because I was there,” said Pat Miles, former U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Michigan. “The truth is, Gretchen Whitmer took swift action to stop Larry Nassar once and for all. Her office got the search warrants that got the evidence that put Nassar behind bars, where he belongs. Gretchen did what any good prosecutor would do, and the fact that Bill Schuette and his allies are now using a tragedy like the Nassar case to score political points is simply appalling.” “By making this a political issue, we are essentially saying that the validity of your sexual assault depends on which side of the aisle you sit on,” said University of Michigan alum and Nassar survivor Grace French. “It takes the focus away from what you’re trying to solve, and makes us as survivors a pawn in a divided political climate. I call on Bill Schuette, politely, and respectfully, to make the Michigan Republican Party take down this ad. Leave my abusers face out of politics. Leave sexual assault out of politics.” “The Michigan Republican Party’s ad is a deplorable act on behalf of someone who is not ashamed of using me and my sister survivors to promote a lie for political gain. Bill Schuette should condemn the ad immediately,” said Nassar Survivor Jane Katzer. “This ad has played in my home and caused me to relive everything that Nassar himself had put me through. It’s an insult to me, it’s an insult to my family, and it’s an insult to everyone who has survived sexual assault.” “Bill Schuette needs to do the right thing and condemn this ad right now,” said Muskegon County Prosecutor DJ Hilson. “It does not portray an accurate picture of the truth and Schuette has the duty to tell the whole story. If Schuette believes in the truth, he will publicly demand that the Michigan Republican Party take this ad off the air immediately.” “Suggesting that Gretchen Whitmer is responsible for Larry Nassar continuing his atrocities by doing nothing is way beyond the pale – in fact it is repugnant. And a lie. And Schuette knows this,” said Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy. “Whitmer followed policy and procedure and suggesting otherwise is shameful. I usually refrain from commenting on how other electeds do their job, but I cannot let this pass. Protecting those that have been victims of sexual assault has been one of my life’s many passions for decades. I will not be a party to Schuette or anyone else being untruthful about the plight of these and other survivors. I will get up on my high horse and go far and wide if I have to speak this truth. Yes, I am a long time supporter of Gretchen Whitmer. But first and foremost I am a relentless supporter of the truth.” “The special interests have it wrong,” said Ingham County Sheriff Scott Wriggelsworth. “The evidence that was discovered in Larry Nassar’s home dumpster would have likely been destroyed if Gretchen’s office hadn’t acted so quickly. Assisting law enforcement investigators in drafting the search warrants was key in retrieving the evidence that ultimately led Nassar to plead guilty and receive a 60 year sentence.” As Bridge Magazine’s Truth Squad has reported, Whitmer “put the interests of justice and sexual assault victims ahead of her own political ambitions by allowing the attorney general to spearhead the cases rather than seeking to prosecute through her own office. Whitmer’s mantle as an advocate for sexual assault victims remains intact.” # # # Share this post: Share Tweet Email Post navigation  Previous Post ‘Republicans and Independents for Whitmer’ Announces Formation to Help Elect Former Senate Democratic Leader Next Post   Desperate Schuette Doubles Down on Shameful Nassar Attack Ad Meet Gretchen Meet Garlin Issues News Volunteer Events Media Store Donate JOIN GRETCHEN Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube Medium P.O.

Whitmer Campaign Raises Record-Breaking $8 Million in 2018 - 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 OCTOBER 26, 2018 BY ADAM FOX-LONG Whitmer Campaign Raises Record-Breaking $8 Million in 2018 Campaign builds grassroots army with over 60 thousand donations, 85 percent $100 or less DETROIT – Today the Whitmer for Governor campaign will report it raised over $8 million in 2018, with 85 percent of the campaign’s donations $100 or less. The campaign will report 62,298 contributions for the cycle, with 43,072 contributions from Michiganders. The campaign raised more than $4 million in the most recent period that ended on October 21st, and will report $959,242 cash on hand. “Gretchen Whitmer has all of the momentum in this race,” said Whitmer for Governor Press Secretary Nicole Simmons. “She has raised a record-breaking amount in her run for governor because she’s gotten into all 83 counties and talked to real Michiganders about what they want her next governor to focus on. She’s running a real grassroots campaign with an overwhelming majority of donations coming from inside Michigan and under $100. Gretchen is ready to keep her foot on the gas and continue getting Michiganders excited about finally electing a governor who will work with everyone to solve the problems they face every day.” Since entering the race for governor, Gretchen Whitmer’s campaign has raised more than $12 million for the cycle, more than any non-incumbent Democratic candidate for governor in Michigan history. Whitmer is continuing to build momentum in the race. Last month, the campaign announced the group ‘Republicans and Independents for Whitmer,’ which included the former Chair of the Michigan Republican Party, Mel Larsen, former U.S. Rep. Joe Schwarz (R-Battle Creek), and a number of former Snyder, Engler and Milliken cabinet officials. Whitmer has also been endorsed by the Detroit Regional Chamber and has been endorsed by more law enforcement organizations than Bill Schuette, the sitting Attorney General. Whitmer has released plans to fight urban poverty, protect women’s health and reproductive rights, clean up Michigan’s drinking water, improve education and skills training, create more good-paying jobs, fix Michigan’s infrastructure and make state government more open, transparent and accountable. ### Share this post: Share Tweet Email Post navigation  Previous Post Whitmer Launches Campaign Ad Focused on Getting Things Done for Michiganders Next Post   Former President Barack Obama Urges Michigan Voters to Support Gretchen Whitmer in New Radio Ad Meet Gretchen Meet Garlin Issues News Volunteer Events Media Store Donate JOIN GRETCHEN Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube Medium P.O.
