Democrats Flip Flop and Put Partisanship Above Protections

The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding today’s news that Michigan Senate Democrats have decided to withdraw their support of whistleblower protections, which passed the State Senate 37-0 earlier this year. The retraction of support comes after fellow Democrat Gretchen Whitmer vetoed the bill.

“Michigan ranks dead last when it comes to government transparency, but when given a choice between protecting whistleblowers or protecting the governor, Michigan Senate Democrats have chosen the latter. Their profile in cowardice is truly shameful and shows that the Democrats’ promises of government transparency were as empty as the potholes Democrats have failed to fill.”
