Michigan Gov. Won’t Comment on Shooting of Elderly GOP Canvasser


Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer won’t criticize the shooting of an 84-year-old pro-life woman by a man after she went to his house to canvass. The man claims his finger just slipped onto the trigger by accident.


The woman had been canvassing against Proposal 3 in Lake Odessa, which would “write a broad new right to ‘reproductive freedom’ into the Michigan Constitution, invaliding a 1931 abortion ban and potentially other existing regulations,” according to Bridge Michigan.

Michigan State Police told Fox News that the woman had been previously passing out pamphlets before a heated discussion with the man’s wife and subsequent gunshot. Police confirmed that she was shot in the shoulder and that she was released from the hospital following treatment. Her case remains open.

Gubernatorial candidate Tudor Dixon discussed it on Fox News.

Democrats seem to think of Republicans as little more than vermin. That can work both ways!

Gretchen and her co-terrorists are a terror to my home state Michigan. There have been time when the reported Covid cases in the state have been higher that the number that IBT reports for India a nation of 1.4 billion people.
She has more outward ‘beauty’ (allure/ attractiveness) that the average but she lacks any inner beauty. Likely to have more votes counted for her in November than Tudor Dixon who has a racially diverse group of people running on her ticket.
Maybe Michigan can recover like Virginia a year ago? One can only hope, and work for the good candidate.
