Tudor Dixon Mocks Gretchen Whitmer Using The Plot To Kidnap Her

5 days ago

Tudor Dixon, the Republican Party’s pick to run the state of Michigan, mocked her incumbent opponent on Friday for being the target of a kidnapping plot that landed some of the organizers in federal prison.

More than a dozen men were arrested in 2020 for conspiring to capture Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) by force, potentially to kill her.

Dixon attempted to draw a parallel between the kidnapping scheme and Whitmer’s policies, which Dixon says are bad for Michigan businesses, but she ended up delivering a bizarre punchline.

“The sad thing is that Gretchen will tie your hands, put a gun to your head and ask if you’re ready to talk. For someone so worried about being kidnapped, Gretchen Whitmer sure is good at taking business hostage and holding it for ransom,” Dixon said.

Her comments elicited applause from the crowd of about 300 at the American Polish Cultural Center in Troy, Michigan, according to The Detroit News.

Whitmer’s campaign responded with a statement emphasizing the severity of the conspiracy against her.

“Threats of violence ― whether to Governor Whitmer or to candidates and elected officials on the other side of the aisle ― are no laughing matter, and the fact that Tudor Dixon thinks it’s a joke shows that she is absolutely unfit to serve in public office,” it read.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel, a Democrat, said Dixon’s comments were “repugnant.”

“Anyone who would make light of such an effort is not fit to hold public office at any level,” Nessel wrote in a tweet.
