(TargetLiberty.org) – Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer hasn’t been having a great year. Her draconian COVID lockdown measures have infuriated many Michiganders. Revelations that her husband had tried to get around her laws to put the family boat in the water for Memorial Day weekend didn’t help either. Now she’s also facing protests from anti-cop extremists who think the notoriously “progressive” Whitmer isn’t progressive enough.
Luckily, unlike ordinary Americans, she doesn’t have to face increased danger of assault or arson because of all this discontent. She can simply have a range of extra security features added to her home – paid for with $1.1 million of taxpayers’ money.

$1.1M for Gretchen's wall.

Whitmer’s official residence in Lansing is now receiving a major security upgrade, in response to what she says is an “explosion” of threats to her safety. The new protection includes an eight-foot perimeter security fence – which is ironic, as Whitmer has dismissed President Trump’s border security wall as “costly and ineffective” and said the money should be spent on other things.
