Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is contending with hundreds of complaints being filed against her over her handling of nursing homes during the coronavirus pandemic. Whitmer is facing similar scrutiny to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who is fighting against a push from both Democrats and Republicans in New York City to resign after it was revealed that his administration withheld information on the number of nursing home deaths, as well as accusations that he sexually harassed multiple women in his administration.
In Michigan, residents are just as angry at Whitmer.
In fact, Macomb County Prosecutor Pete Lucido is setting up procedures for how the state will investigate potential mishandling of nursing home deaths over the last year, according to Red State.
Whitmer has accused the prosecutor of playing politics with his investigations.
“Our top priority from the start has been protecting Michiganders, especially seniors and our most vulnerable. The administration’s policies carefully tracked CDC guidance on nursing homes, and we prioritized testing of nursing home residents and staff to save lives. Early in the pandemic, the state acted swiftly to create a network of regional hubs with isolation units and adequate PPE to prevent the spread of COVID-19 within a facility. In addition, we have offered 100 percent of nursing home residents priority access to the vaccine. Both the former head of AARP, as well as an independent U-M study, praised our work to save lives in nursing homes,” Whitmer’s office said in a statement.
Lucido said he has received hundreds of complaints concerning the governor.
He said he is not “going after anyone, never have.”

Hunter Biden Faces Devastating Tax Charges, Adding to Legal Woes
In a significant legal blow to President Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, a California indictment reveals a litany of tax charges, compounding his legal troubles after his earlier plea of not guilty to federal gun charges. Former Whitewater deputy counsel Sol Wisenberg emphasized on “FOX & Friends” the devastating nature of the indictment, considering it a vindication of IRS whistleblowers.
Furthermore, Wisenberg contends that the indictment could have surfaced much earlier, pointing to the IRS whistleblowers’ struggle to keep the investigation ongoing. The legal battle, which involved Judge Maryellen Noreika in a Delaware courtroom, prevented what Wisenberg calls a “hinky plea deal” from proceeding. According to reports from Fox News, the former counsel believes that the defense attorneys for Hunter Biden may have overreached in their plea deal negotiations, leading to the current legal turmoil.
The California indictment specifically accuses Hunter Biden of failing to pay nearly $200,000 in income tax for the year 2019. This follows his October plea of not guilty to federal gun charges in the District of Delaware, a case originating from a lengthy investigation.
As the legal noose tightens around Hunter Biden, the latest tax charges come at a critical time. House Republican leaders are gearing up for a vote next week on a measure that could formally initiate an impeachment inquiry into President Biden. The proposed inquiry revolves around potential connections between the president and his son’s business dealings, further intensifying the political and legal challenges faced by the Biden family.
The unfolding legal drama poses a serious threat to Hunter Biden’s reputation and, consequently, could impact the Biden administration’s stability as it faces increasing scrutiny from political adversaries.
