Charlie LeDuff: Michigan's Nursing Home Deaths Might Be 100% Higher That Whitmer's "Official" Figures
Also: Court Rules That Recall Effort Can Go Forward

Michigan also jammed the nursing homes full of covid patients.

And they're playing similar games as Cuomo did to hide how many people Whitmer killed.

A Michigan journalist claimed on Wednesday that a 2020 "pilot program study" reveals the COVID-related nursing home death counts in the Great Lakes State could be double what Governor Gretchen Whitmer's administration has reported.

Charlie LeDuff joined "Tucker Carlson Tonight" to voice his concerns after the documents he studied purportedly showed just under half of the 6,945 deaths classified as "vital records reviews" could be traced back to nursing home addresses. Direct nursing home reportings, he said, were done on an "honor system."

LeDuff said that while New York has grouped deaths of people in nursing homes versus hospital deaths, "Michigan doesn't know."

"They found of all the rest of them that 50% were nursing home residents. You know what they did? They stopped looking," he said of the pilot study.

"Just like the story about [The State Department stopping former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's probe of the] Wuhan lab. They didn't want to know the answer. I asked them, why did you stop? [They said] It was too time-consuming."

I didn't cover this when it was breaking, on May 5, but it's worth mentioning: remember when Unfetching Gretchen went to visit her father in Florida, while demanding that her subjects remain homebound?

It wasn't just that she defied her own orders.

It's that she pressured billionaire businessmen with business interests in the state to loan her their private jet.

When Gov. Gretchen Whitmer was outed last month for a secretive trip to Florida in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, her office claimed Michigan taxpayers did not foot the bill.

What they did not tell us, however, is that Whitmer asked a group of wealthy Detroit businessmen to provide a private plane they share.

Those businessmen have major dealings in and with the state of Michigan.

"We wondered why she reached out to us instead of booking a private charter," said one of the plane's owners, who exchanged his candor for confidentiality. "You can't tell a governor no. Who needs that kind of trouble?”

Had Whitmer booked a round trip flight from Lansing to West Palm Beach through a private charter company, it would likely have cost $10,000 to $20,000, or a whopping $40,000 for the actual jet she took, according to private jet websites. The latter is more than 25 percent of the governor's salary -- before taxes.

It is unclear whether Whitmer reimbursed the company – Air Eagle – which manages the aircraft owned by the businessmen. And, if so, at what price and from which bank account?

The scam these rats have created for themselves is that they only "reimburse" the cost of a first class ticket... on a commercial flight.

That is, even though the chartered plane you're taking is luxury and convenience made metal, and even though the cost of such a charter is $20,000, you just have to look up what Delta is charging for a business class ticket and "reimburse" your benefactors that.

So yeah, the trip cost them $20,000, but you gave them $800, so it's all Even Steven and you didn't take a bribe, or demand a bribe from businessmen.

Update: On Thursday, a court rejected Whitmer's dishonest reasons to reject a recall bid and permitted the effort to go forward.

Recall petitions against Gov. Gretchen Whitmer can proceed, a Michigan court ruled on Thursday.

The Board of State Canvassers "correctly" approved the six recall petitions against Whitmer and one against Lt. Gov. Garlin Gilchrist, Judges Kathleen Jansen and Michael Gadola of the Michigan Court of Appeals ruled on Thursday, rejecting one argument made by counsel for the governor as "unpersuasive."


Whitmer, who had argued these cases did not "adequately describe the authorities cited as reasons for the recall," plans to appeal the decision, campaign spokesperson Mark Fisk said.
