Whitmer - No Violations On Campaign Finance Issues
Sat, 15 Jan 2022 06:00:55 EST



No violations have been found after two campaign finance complaints were made against Governor Whitmer.

The complaints centered around Whitmer's use of campaign committee funds to pay for a chartered flight out of state and the acceptance of donations in excess of campaign contribution limits due to recall efforts.

The Michigan Bureau of Elections conducted a thorough analysis and concluded the use of campaign funds to pay for the chartered flights was allowed because the purpose was to ensure the governors physical safety in response to credible and ongoing threats against her.

Whitmer reimbursed the campaign committee for the market value of first-class flights for herself and her family, according to the Department of State.
