Gretchen Whitmer Loses Again To 77-Year-Old Barber: Judge Rules Shop Can Remain Open

(Breitbart) – Karl Manke, a 77-year-old barber in Owosso, Michigan, has defeated Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and Attorney General Dana Nessel in court for the second time in about a week.

The Argus-Press reported:

Judge Matthew Stewart ruled that Karl Manke will not have to close his shop after the state again failed to prove he was an imminent danger to public health.

Stewart said the state did not arrest Manke when he was cited, so he didn’t represent “an imminent health danger.”

“(The attorney general) has not presented any studies underlying the doctor’s conclusion. (The attorney general) has not shown any nexus between the cutting of hair and an increased risk of transmission,” Stewart wrote, the Detroit Free Press reported.

“(The attorney general’s) filings rest more on general facts about COVID-19 than specific practices or conditions at (Manke’s) business.”

Nessel’s office said she would appeal the ruling.

The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs suspended Manke’s license without a hearing.

“It’s an unbelievable abuse of power,” attorney David Kallman told radio host Steve Gruber, stating there is no legal basis for the action.

“This is pure retribution by the governor’s office and by the AG. This is so petty and vindictive, it’s beyond the pale,” Kallman said.

After her defeat, Nessel attacked Manke publicly.

We want him to discontinue his conduct, which we think is aiding and abetting the spread of the virus,” Nessel claimed.

“Mr. Manke,” she sighed, “He’s not a hero, he’s not a patriot. A patriot is a person that fights all enemies, foreign and domestic, and does everything possible to protect his fellow countrymen and countrywomen.”

“To me, Mr. Manke is doing just the opposite of that and he’s being selfish in his behavior,” the attorney general declared.

  1. The only problem with that at this time is that the Wicked Witch(mer) still has 2 1/2 years left on her term… she MUST be recalled (or it is likely someone may decide on more DRASTIC means for removing a rogue governor, AG, or secretary of nanny state).

  2. The AG and governess are petty politicians and bullying an old man trying to survive with no income is very troubling to many people in the State of Michigan. Both of these women deserve to be ousted from their positions.

  3. My neighbor’s monther makes $71 hourly on the laptop. She has been unemployed for 9 months but last month her paycheck was $15722 just working on the laptop for a few hours. you could try this out

  4. The first thing MI. voters need to do is ensure this woman does NOT GET REELECTED, All Governors have LIMITED power and authority to protect their states, But many across the country have gone far beyond their limited authority and many serving as State Legislators have FAILED in their responsibility to control the Power Grabbing by these governors, We as citizens may have a struggle going forward in reestablishing our Civil Liberties and Freedom, For many of us we will have that opportunity in November to remove from office many of those that have violated their limited authority, The sad reality is that many voters have very short memories.

    Mr. Manke IS a hero to all Americans who are suddenly finding ALL of their rights being trampled on by the likes of Gov. Half-Whit. Keep up the GREAT work, Mr. Manke !!
