In the state of Michigan, a court recently ruled that numerous recall petitions issued against the state’s governor, Democrat Gretchen Whitmer, can proceed forward. This ruling undermined Whitmer’s attempts to undermine the recall effort, and it also supported the Michigan Court of Appeals’ approval of six recall petitions against the Whitmer regime, as well as one recall petition against Lieutenant Governor Garlin Gilchrist, who is also a Democrat.
Democrats had opposed the petitions by claiming that the authorities did not provide sufficient reasons for the recall, and they intend to appeal the recent ruling by the court.
However, Whitmer has incurred significant attention for her various lockdown orders associated with the coronavirus, as well as her own repeated violations of her own rules. Moreover, Whitmer has also attracted significant controversy after multiple members of her own administration also violated her COVID-related lockdowns and other protocols.
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer apologized for breaking her state's Covid restrictions once again.
Have ordinary citizens who violated Michigan's restrictions got off by apologizing as well?

In one instance, Whitmer was dining out with several individuals who disregarded mask mandates and continuously rearranged themselves amongst different groups. This situation blatantly violated a mandate from Michigan’s Health and Human Services Department, which had ordered for all groups to remain a minimum of six feet apart.
