Whitmer apologizes after photo of her leaked.…

Lans­ing — Michi­gan Gov. Gretchen Whit­mer issued an apol­o­gy Sun­day after a pho­to emerged show­ing her at a restau­rant with 12 oth­er peo­ple gath­ered around tables pushed togeth­er in vio­la­tion of her health depart­men­t’s cur­rent epi­dem­ic order.

The May 15 order from the state Depart­ment of Health and Human Ser­vices says no more than six peo­ple can be seat­ed togeth­er and groups of patrons must be six feet apart. The con­ser­v­a­tive news out­let Bre­it­bart first report­ed the pho­to Sunday.

“Through­out the pan­dem­ic, I’ve been com­mit­ted to fol­low­ing pub­lic health pro­to­cols,” Whit­mer said Sun­day in a state­ment. “Yes­ter­day, I went with friends to a local restau­rant. As more peo­ple arrived, the tables were pushed togeth­er. Because we were all vac­ci­nat­ed, we did­n’t stop to think about it.

“In ret­ro­spect, I should have thought about it. I am human. I made a mis­take, and I apologize.”
