Things are really not looking too good for ol’ Gretchen Whitmer.
She’s following in Governor Cuomo’s footsteps and is now under fire for her controversial rulings on nursing homes accepting COVID-19 positive patients into their facilities.
But it gets worse than that…
Apparently, her former COVID policy chief took a big payout of $155,000 upon his departure and is reportedly bound by silence on the terms of his severance deal.
That doesn’t look shady at all right?
Also, Whitmer’s former COVID policy chief was the person advising the Biden transition team on health care.
Gordon raised eyebrows when he abruptly left the Whitmer administration in January for reasons that have yet to be disclosed — and controversy erupted earlier this month when it was revealed that Gordon received a $155,000 payout upon his departure, with Whitmer herself confirming that Gordon has been bound to silence regarding the terms of his severance deal.
“The nature of the separation agreement is that when someone leaves, there are terms to it and you cannot share every term to it,” Whitmer sad earlier this month. “That’s simply what it is.”
Gordon, it turns out, also advised the Biden presidential transition team on healthcare policy. With Whitmer now under fire for her policy directing state nursing homes to accept COVID-positive residents who had been discharged from hospitals, observers are trying to piece together a puzzle involving a fatally mistaken policy, official deception, and a lavish payout contingent on silence — a mystery with political and legal repercussions potentially stretching from Lansing to Washington, D.C.
Critics have alleged that policies sending COVID-positive patients back into the midst of vulnerable elderly populations squeezed together within the close confines of nursing homes created conditions that could hardly be better suited for coronavirus to spread and kill.
Michigan’s policy was administered by Gordon, a career politician who has held positions at the U.S. Department of Education and the Office of Management and Budget. During a May 2020 Michigan Senate Oversight Committee hearing, Gordon himself admitted that he was not confident that the state’s reported total of COVID nursing home deaths at the time was accurate.
Well, this little tidbit of info certainly doesn’t look like it’s going to help Whitmer in the least.
Not to mention, the new Republican Macomb County DA wants to press criminal charges against her.
If I were her, I’d start getting a one-way ticket to the Virgin Islands ASAP.
