Typical leftist retort: attack the source. The story is paywalled in both the News and Freep.

Of course, Matt. Liberals are like robots, they do what they are told.

Warren Evans, the guy who just had an airport terminal building named after him, used tens of thousands of campaign funds to give "jobs" to family members.

What Whitmer did is certainly inappropriate, and appropriate sanctions should be leveled, but it's small apples to some of the shit that's been going on in Wayne County for years.

Snyder was a bit more clandestine. He set up his NERD fund, which technically wasn't a campaign fund, corporate and individual donors contributed to it, their identities were kept confidential, and potentially, they received preferential treatment from his administration (or from state governmental agencies, such as MEGA, where majority of board members were picked by Snyder).
The NERD Fund pulled in approximately $1.3 million in contributions in 2011, according to IRS filings, and received another $368,000 in 2012.

In addition to paying Baird's salary, the fund has been used to upgrade an auditorium in the governor's offices, buy an alarm system for his house, pay travel expenses for his staff and cover living expenses for Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr.

Using Robinhood for online equities and options trades is a terrible idea. USE A LEGITIMATE BROKER-DEALER INSTEAD! (Fidelity, Schwab, TD Ameritrade, Edward Jones, etc.)

Wayne County? That could be it's own thread MW, oh wait :lol

Doesn't look like Snyder benefited in any way from that fund, unlike Whitmer. If anything, it looks like it was to reduce state expenditures.

A new home security system doesn't count as a personal benefit?

True, some of the money was also used in a manner like you described, e.g. housing for Mr. Orr.

The "staff travel expense" part raises my eyebrows.

Snyder didn't use governors mansion, I think security is appropriate in that instance.

Meanwhile, people keep dying at the fastest rate in the country in Florida, but let's complain about a quick trip to Florida instead.


My mom taught me an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. It's too bad Repubes don't believe in prevention for COVID, but they can deny someone water waiting in a line to vote.

This is a personal responsibility thing. The government can't stop a disease. At least Governor DeSantis isn't throwing sick people in nursing homes like Tyrant Whitmer did.

Donald Trump was and is the best president this country has ever had. And he will return to glory as our leader again.
