Tad Dowker, the owner of NorthShore Dock LLC, posted a comment on Facebook on Thursday claiming that Marc Mallory, Whitmer's husband, had put in a request to have his boat placed in the lake near the family's home in Elk Rapids.
'This morning I was out working when the office called me, there was a gentleman on hold who wanted his boat in the water before the weekend,' the post read.
'Being memorial weekend and the fact that we started working 3 weeks late means there is no change this is going to happen.
Well our office personal had explained this to the man and he replied "I am the husband to the Governor, will this make a difference".'
The post included two emojis, one of them expressing laughter and the other appearing to show curiosity.
'As you can imagine it does make a difference, that would put you to the back of the line!!!
'Needless to say, our Governor and her husband will not be getting their boat for memorial day.
'To good not to share, I love it when karma comes around, even if just in small doses.'
The Facebook post generated more than 180 reactions, 50 comments and a dozen shares.
That post has since been deleted, though screenshots of it are circulating online.
