A weekend tweet made by Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel is raising some eyebrows but Michigan's top lawyer isn't about to apologize.

Let's call this one "Whiskey-Gate"

Nessel made the since-deleted tweet posting a picture of herself enjoying a shot at the St. Patrick's Day parade, saying, "I don't know these people. But when you get offered a shot of whisky during the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Detroit, you take it! Happy St. Patty's Day to all!"

[Note:  While 'Whiskey' is typically spelled with an 'e' preceding the 'y,' 'Whisky' is also an acceptable spelling, which is primarily used in Canada and Scotland.]

Although the tweet was taken down, leave it to the internet - someone thought to take a screenshot of the tweet, retweeting it with a caption that said, "r-e-s-p-e-c-t."

Nessel's Followup Tweet

Nessel, although unapologetic, took the tweet down and followed it up on Monday saying, If you aren't willing to have at least 1 shot of Jameson at the Detroit St. Patrick's Day Parade, you are:

  1. Under age
  2. Driving
  3. A recovering alcoholic
  4. Muslim or Mormon
  5. Doing it totally wrong.

Come at me, people

For Everyone else, Happy St. Patrick's Day!"


Mixed Reviews in the Court of Public Opinion

As you'd probably expect, the tweets have been met with criticism by some while others have expressed their respect for the AG for being willing to enjoy herself at the parade.

Considered at one time to be one of the best ski resorts around,  the lodge would see 3,000 to 4,000 skiers a day and was once the largest employer in Leelanau County. Take a look at the creepy shambles Sugar Loaf was left in for years.
