(UnitedVoice.com) – Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D) hasn’t exactly covered herself with glory during the COVID pandemic, but now it’s emerging that the mess in her state could be even worse than it looks. The virus has cut a deadly swathe through Michigan nursing homes, but it turns out the state doesn’t even have proper records of who died where.
Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is facing scrutiny for undercounted COVID-19 death toll numbers in long-term care facilities that are proving to be far higher than previously calculated.https://t.co/6LKwYIBZeU

On May 26, journalist Charlie LeDuff told Tucker Carlson that his research shows deaths in Michigan nursing homes could be double what Whitmer is admitting to. LeDuff says that state officials initially tried to record where COVID deaths were happening, but when they realized half of them were nursing home residents who had been exposed to the virus by Whitmer’s policies, “they just stopped looking.” From then on, he said, nursing home deaths were reported on an honor system.
Other Democrat-run states have come under fire for nursing home deaths, notably New York, where Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) ordered nursing homes to accept COVID patients. However, at least Cuomo (finally) came clean about how many people his orders had killed. Whitmer is still trying to hide the bodies.
