Vocal Trump critic and Democrat governor of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer, has just received some very bad news regarding her conduct and the IRS.
“Whitmer is facing an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) complaint over her controversial trip to Florida in March, which she initially lied about taking and which came after she had cautioned against out-of-state travel due to coronavirus risks,” according to a Fox News report.
The complaint, filed by Michigan Rising Action, alleges the governor’s trip to Florida was “outside the tax-exempt scope of her transition organization that helped pay for the trip. The governor paid over $27,000 for her flight through a combination of payments from an inauguration-related nonprofit and with her own out-of-pocket cash, according to her office.”
“In light of these facts, we encourage you to investigate whether Michigan Transition 2019 has violated the Internal Revenue Code, and if so, to take the appropriate action, including the assessment of any appropriate penalties,” said the Michigan Rising Action complaint.
