The Michigan Auditor General confirmed what far too many Michigan families already knew: Gretchen Whitmer and her administration concealed the deaths of thousands of Michigan seniors.

According to the report, after forcing Covid-positive patients into nursing homes, Whitmer’s administration failed to report over 2,300 deaths in long term care facilities, hiding up to 30% of nursing home deaths.

“Gretchen Whitmer’s failed leadership helped create an environment where Michigan seniors were forced to fend for themselves while Covid swept through nursing homes,” said RGA Spokesperson Chris Gustafson. “The Auditor General’s report is a sad reminder that Whitmer and her administration will regularly shun transparency in favor of protecting the Governor’s political career. If only Whitmer had the same level of concern for the people she was elected to represent!”
