Vocal critic of Donald Trump and Democrat governor of Michigan Gretchen Whitmer is fuming after getting shut down by a court.
According to Breitbart News, Whitmer “failed to stop a series of recall petitions filed against her after the state Board of Canvassers approved them.”
Whitmer argued against the recall petitions claiming that the use of the word “bar” was ambiguous. There’s only one problem with that. It’s the same word Whitmer used in her orders.
The court was not amused:
The Governor maintains that where “electors are left to guess at [the] type of ‘bar’ the [p]etition refers to, the [p]etition lack[s] sufficient clarity and is noncompliant with the Michigan Election Law.” We reject this argument. Any person invited to sign the petition would very likely envision a reference to a conventional tavern, where people can purchase and consume alcoholic beverages, when faced with the wording, “closing indoor service at bars.” This is particularly so when the word is taken in context, used as it is in connection with the related terms “nightclubs” and “restaurants,” strongly suggesting that the term “bars” refers to an establishment, like a nightclub and like many restaurants, that serves alcoholic beverages.
