During the coronavirus pandemic, restaurants and bars across Michigan have suffered fines and losses so huge that some had to close their doors for good. Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s strict mandates were devastating. The business owners who bravely fought the mandates were fined and had to pay thousands to open back up again.

Whitmer’s recent mandate is less strict but is still over-the-top:

“Consumption of food or beverages is permitted only in a designated dining area where patrons are seated, groups of patrons are separated by at least 6 feet, no more than 6 patrons are seated together (at a table, booth, or group of fixed seats), and groups of patrons do not intermingle.”

Breitbart News obtained a photo of Whitmer at a bar in East Lansing, Michigan, where she’s huddled with a large group of people. East Lansing is home to Whitmer’s Alma Mater, Michigan State University, where she was in sorority Kappa Alpha Theta.

Numerous bars have been penalized for doing exactly what Whitmer is pictured doing. What about them?

Whitmer released a statement (see below) apologizing, but what about the people who were fined? Shouldn’t they get a refund if the governor can’t even follow her own guidelines?

Meshawn Maddock of Michigan Conservative Coalition and Michigan Republican Party Co-Chair pointed out on Twitter that many Michiganders suffered tremendously from the Whitmer mandates:

-Hairstylists were targeted by Nessel as they gave haircuts on the lawn of the Capitol one year ago, can they apologize and get their thousands of dollars in legal fees back?

-Marlena also apologized for not following Whitmer’s restrictions; her bail was $15k. Her business is shut down.
