Gov Whitmer Hit With IRS Complaint After Shady Trip to Florida

Michigan Gov. Gretchen 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.

Conservative advocacy group Michigan Rising Action filed the IRS complaint against Whitmer and 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.

The complaint also alleges that Whitmer’s chartered private jet, costing over $27,000, was “a private benefit” to the embattled governor.
