GOP Michigan Sen. Mike Shirkey Pictured With Whitmer Kidnap Plot Suspect

A photo shared on the social media site Parler appears to show Mike Shirkey, a Republican state senator from Michigan, with one of the men charged over the alleged plot to kidnap the state's governor, Gretchen Whitmer.

The photo was posted on the platform, which is popular with conservatives, about one month ago. It shows Shirkey, majority leader in the Michigan Senate, smiling as he stands alongside William Null, who faces up to 22 years in prison if he is convicted of domestic terrorism.

The image was uploaded by Jason Howland, co-founder of a group called the American Patriot Council. He wrote alongside the photo: "The establishment wants to remove one of Michigan's nest [sic] sheriffs for sharing a stage with an ALLEGED terrorist, but here's state senate majority leader Mike Shirkey on the same stage with the same guy… and he looks so happy."

At the time of writing, Howland's Parler page has been taken down. A message on the website reads: "The page you are looking for does not exist."

Null, 39, of Shelbyville, is one of the 14 men charged last October over the alleged plot to kidnap and kill Whitmer, a Democrat. He was also photographed among the armed protesters who stormed the Michigan Capitol in April 2020—an event that was later described by a criminal law professor as a "dress rehearsal" for the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol on January 6.

2. Hope he is sweating bullets now.

State Police and FBI have their phone and internet records.

3. Thrown under the bus, Gaetz/Tucker style.

“Shut up, you idiot. My wife knew nothing about our double date.”
