The Connecticut Democrats are "very proud" to welcome Michigan Governor and notable covid tyrant Gretchen Whitmer to Connecticut for their 2023 John Bailey Dinner. This is the CT Dems' biggest event of the year, and it will take place on September 22nd in Stamford.
Most people remember Whitmer for "continuing to exercise her unconstitutional authority even after the state’s supreme court ruled against her".
The sheer magnitude of the authority in dispute, as well as its concentration in a single individual [Whitmer], simply cannot be sustained within our constitutional system of separated powers.Michigan Court Ruling, as per The New American
Whitmer defied the court and extended mask mandates and other pandemic-related rules anyway. Of course, she and her husband were both subsequently caught violating her own pandemic rules. She was also a staunch advocate for experimental covid vaccines that have wreaked havoc across the country, repeatedly urging people to get vaccinated and boosted even though her own vaccine didn't prevent her from getting covid. At least 36,459 Michigan residents suffered adverse effects to covid vaccines, including 811 people who died following the advice to get vaccinated and boosted.
She was also one of five governors who pushed people sick with covid into nursing homes and, in the name of covid, even implemented crazy rules preventing people from operating motorized boats and from congregating in hardware stores around gardening supplies. In addition to banning seeds, Whitmer also forced the closure of garden centers and nurseries and banned landscaping work, which she justified because the weather was bad anyway.
Eventually, in March 2023, Whitmer grudgingly admitted that restricting seed sales during her endless lockdown orders "maybe was a little more than we needed to do." Really? Gaslight much?
This is the person that Connecticut Democrats are celebrating -- one of the biggest covid tyrants in the country. It speaks volumes, doesn't it?
