Anti-Trump Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer was just exposed for giving a coronavirus response contract to a Democrat consulting firm whose founder wished the virus on President Trump.
According to The Daily Wire:
Michigan Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer rushed to cancel coronavirus contracts that she awarded Democrat consulting firms after she was blasted for trying to use taxpayer money for partisan gain during a national crisis.
“The Whitmer administration announced Monday that it had awarded a contract for contact tracing in the state to Every Action VAN, an arm of the Democratic data behemoth NGP VAN. The liberal firm works with all of the major Democratic campaign committees and hundreds of labor unions across the country,” The Washington Free Beacon reported. “The move has sparked concern that she is using the coronavirus to strengthen the Democratic Party’s data operation, potentially at the expense of public health.”
The organization is run by Stuart Trevelyan, who is helping Joe Biden and worked for the Clinton administration.
“Whitmer’s own gubernatorial campaign paid NGP VAN nearly $5,000 in 2019, according to state campaign finance records. Every Action is a branch of the firm that works with nonprofit organizations,” The Free Beacon added. “Every Action’s other clients include the radical anti-Israel group Jewish Voice for Peace, Planned Parenthood, and the left-wing National Women’s Law Center. Whitmer’s office did not respond to a request for comment, and the state has not disclosed the dollar amount of the contract awarded to the firm.”
The Free Beacon also reported that Whitmer gave a contract to Great Lakes Community Engagement, which is run by Democrat consultant Michael Kolehouse. Kolehouse owns a firm that works to help elect far-left Democrats.
GOP Chairwoman Ronna Romney-McDaniel responded the blatant partisanship:
Kolehouse recently posted on social media that he hopes President Trump gets coronavirus.

The company was hired without a competitive bid process and experts said they never have seen anything like this where an executive gave a contract to a partisan company that would be able to collect data on each and every citizen.
