(ReliableNews.org) – Michigan’s Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer received widespread criticism for taking a trip to Florida in March after advising Michigan residents to avoid traveling out of state. Making matters worse, she got caught trying to cover up her trip during an April interview. Now it’s May, and the controversy just got worse.
The Detroit Free Press reported on May 17 that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) launched an investigation into the company hired by Whitmer to fly her to Florida.

As it turns out, Detroit-based Air Eagle LLC is not authorized by the FAA to operate charter flights. Charter operators must meet higher standards than other flight companies when it comes to pilot training, maintenance services, and a host of other requirements.
When Whitmer’s office was asked about the investigation, her staff claimed the decision was made to charter a flight due to ongoing security concerns.
Gov. Whitmer imposed harsh restrictions on Michigan residents for more than a year, and this is how she thanks them? It’s time for Democratic leaders like her to put an end to their “do as I say, not as I do” style of governance.
