Andrew Cuomo is currently facing intense backlash and an FBI probe over his handling of nursing homes during the COVID pandemic. But he was not the only governor whose terrible mishandling of the crisis led to unnecessary deaths.
In many Democrat-run states, the governors imposed strict rules to “slow the spread” of the virus. Those rules shut down schools, destroyed businesses, and put millions out of work. But it was all to prevent unnecessary infections and perhaps save lives, right?
If that was the case, why did some governors sign orders requiring sick patients into nursing homes? That’s like tossing a live grenade into… well nursing homes. It wasn’t only New York’s leader who pushed such questionable rules, hated and disgraced Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer had similar requirements.
Now, a prosecutor is seeking information to expose what she did.
A local Michigan prosecutor has indicated that criminal charges could be forthcoming against Michigan Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer over her handling of the coronavirus pandemic as it relates to people who died in nursing homes…
“If we find there’s been willful neglect of office if we find there’s been reckless endangerment of a person’s life by bringing them in then we would move forward with charges against the Governor,” Lucido said…
“Gov. Whitmer and her administration continue to refuse to answer questions regarding nursing home deaths,” Ted Goodman, Communications Director for the Michigan Republican Party, told The Daily Wire. “Michiganders deserve to know the true impact of Gov. Whitmer’s orders and we need transparency, now.” [Source: Daily Wire]
It’s highly likely that folks in Michigan are watching what’s unfolding in New York and they want answers from their own leaders. Reports have circulated that the number of nursing home deaths in Michigan is much higher than the official tally, which would put Whitmer in the hot seat. Much like Cuomo, she imposed tough rules on the state—but seemingly put the elderly in danger with her nursing home rules.
But where Cuomo is facing the death of his career (and perhaps criminal prosecution), Whitmer is for now unharmed. You might remember that the media was previously praising Cuomo, until a top aide revealed their cover-up.
All it would take is for some factual information to be revealed out of Michigan, for Whitmer’s fortunes to change. Her staff might not be willing to come forward, but prosecutors are asking families to reveal the circumstances of their elderly members’ deaths. Given enough information, they can build a case that demands scrutiny.
It wouldn’t take much to trigger a large investigation—and perhaps a federal probe. The treatment of the elderly during this pandemic has been criminal no matter how you look at it. Democrats throw our grandparents to the wolves, while subjecting the rest of us ineffective measures. Someone needs to be held accountable.
Hopefully, Whitmer will face the music for what she’s done.
