Michigan Gaining Ground At Impeaching Tyrant Gretchen Whitmer
As I’ve said previously, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has been one of the worst people during this coronavirus pandemic.
Her orders have been completely arbitrary and tyrannical, to say the least. But they have also been unconstitutional as well.
Because of this, there are some who have decided to actually do something and take action against the Governor.
A county in northern Michigan threw its support behind a resolution put forward by three Republican members of Michigan’s House of Representatives calling for the impeachment of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer last week.
Despite Michigan Speaker of the House Rep. Lee Chatfield, a fellow GOP member condemning the resolution, the Kalkaska County Board of Commissioners voted four to two in favor of supporting the effort Friday, reported Michigan Live.
Whitmer has come under fire for her restrictions on businesses during the coronavirus pandemic, further angering Republicans after she and the Department of Health and Human Services issued a three-week order limiting indoor social gatherings last week.
Last week, Republican Representative Beau LaFave announced on Twitter that he along with Matt Maddock and Daire Rendon were issuing articles of impeachment against Gov. Whitmer.
“Today I introduced Articles of Impeachment against Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
The four articles of impeachment against Gov. Whitmer include failing to respect the separation of powers by exercising power granted to the legislative branch, violating the constitutional”

While I think that people shouldn’t take impeachment lightly and that it should only be done in extreme circumstances of continual and willful violations of the Constitution, this certainly seems like one of those instances.
I think that there needs to be an easier process of making all of this happen and a more transparent way of seeing what the process looks like in the case that a state wants to remove the governor of their state. Most people don’t know where to even begin.
