Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel has now released an apology regarding an incident from the Michigan-Michigan State football game in East Lansing on Oct. 30.
Nessel posted a photo of herself appearing slumped in her seat during the game on social media under the headline, “My official statement on ‘Tail-gate Gate.'”
Nessel said she drank two bloody marys on an empty stomach while tailgating before the game, causing her to feel sick.
“Before the big game, I attended a tailgate on an empty stomach. Much to my surprise, MSU tailgate’s tend to have more alcohol than food, so I thought it seemed like a good idea to eat 2 Bloody Mary’s, since as long as you put enough vegetables in them, it’s practically a salad. As it turned out, this was not a brilliant idea. Also, I might be a terrible bartender,” she quipped. “I proceeded to go to the game (which I’m told Michigan definitely won!) 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.”
“I had a few folks help me up the stairs and someone grabbed a wheelchair so as to prevent me from stumbling in the parking lot,” Nessel said. “Like all smart people attending festivities where drinking occurs, I had a designated driver. I went home, fell asleep on the couch, and my wife threw some blankets on me and provided me with some water and Tylenol for what she knew would be a skull-crushing hangover the next day.”
Nessel said in her statement that usually she would have gotten some help from her “trusted friend and communications savant” Kelly Rossman-McKinney, but she died Tuesday after a battle with cancer.
Nessel has said she is running for reelection in 2022.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
