The Michigan Democratic Party released the following statement from Chair Lavora Barnes on the Republican led House and Senate wasting taxpayer dollars suing Governor Whitmer.
“The GOP led House and Senate has wasted $542,000 taxpayer dollars to try and score political points. Over 6700 Michiganders have lost their lives and we are suffering record high unemployment, yet Mike Shirkey and Lee Chatfield would rather focus their attention and our money on spreading misinformation and attacking our Governor. Governor Whitmer has put our health and safety first for the past 7 months. We can’t say the same about these legislative “leaders” that continue to disregard public health warnings, and put the lives of all of Michiganders at risk while wasting taxpayer dollars.”
