Michigan AG Dana Nessel says she drank too much at football tailgate
EAST LANSING, Mich. — Michigan’s attorney general apologized Wednesday and said she drank too much booze before last month’s Michigan-Michigan State football game.
“I might be a terrible bartender,” Dana Nessel said.
Nessel told her story on Facebook, even posting a photo of herself slumped in a seat at Spartan Stadium on Oct. 30 with a Michigan hat covering her face.
Nessel, a Democrat said that she had two Bloody Marys when she was hungry while attending a tailgate. She joked that “as long as you put enough vegetables in them, it’s practically a salad.”
“I proceeded to go to the game … and started to feel ill. I laid low for a while, but my friends recommended that I leave so as to prevent me from vomiting on any of my constituents,” Nessel wrote.
She said she was assisted in getting up the stairs and then someone “grabbed a wheelchair so as to prevent me from stumbling in the parking lot.” Nessel said she was driven home.
“I am human. Sometimes I screw up,” she said. “This was definitely one of those times. My apologies for the mishap to the entire State of Michigan, but especially to that Michigan fan standing behind me. Some things you can’t un-see.”
Nessel has stated that she is running for reelection 2022.
