The following article, Lawmakers In Michigan Now Making Push For Whitmer Impeachment After New Lockdown Order, was first published on Flag And Cross.
It seems everyone’s least favorite tyrannical governor, Gretchen Whitmer, has really ticked off lawmakers in the state of Michigan, as a “growing list” of individuals have begun making calls for her impeachment due to her simply atrocious handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
State Rep. Matt Maddock, who is a member of the GOP, posted a tweet on Monday saying that he, along with several other state lawmakers, support legislative hearings to see about potentially removing Whitmer from office. The announcement by Maddock comes hot on the heels of Whitmer placing the entire state under a new set of lockdown restrictions, despite the fact that the Michigan State Supreme Court chucked out her emergency orders.
“Today, myself and a growing list of Michigan Legislators have decided that [Whitmer] has crossed the line and will be calling for #ImpeachWhitmer hearings. The list of violations is long and the call is overdue,” Maddock said.

He expanded on his statement in a post on the social media platform Parler. He said that GOP state Reps. Daire Rendon, Beau LaFave, Ryan Berman, and Shane Hernandez, as well as GOP state Sens. Dan Lauwers and Lana Theis have joined the push to impeach Michigan’s governor.
“Michigan voters know she has committed the following impeachable conduct:,” Maddock said before accusing Whitmer of a string of abuses, misconduct, and violations:
Ignored court orders.
Violated our Constitutional rights.
Completely ignored due process and the legislature.
Weaponized contract tracing databases to aid [D]emocrat campaigns.
Using our kids as political pawns and denied special needs students who depend on the services that occur during in-person classes. Caused the unnecessary death of thousands of our vulnerable elderly who died alone and scared in nursing homes.
Whitmer’s office then released a response to the calls for her impeachment in a statement that says, “Governor Whitmer doesn’t have any time for partisan politics or people who don’t wear masks, don’t believe in science, and don’t have a plan to fight this virus. Right now, she is focused on saving lives. The governor will continue to work hard for all 10 million Michiganders. This is about Michigan vs. COVID-19. Governor Whitmer doesn’t care if you’re a Trump Republican or a Biden Democrat. We are all in this together.”
The message was delivered through Whitmer’s press secretary Tiffany Brown.
Whitmer announced the new lockdown order for Michigan on Sunday, stating it was necessary in order to help fight against the growing number of COVID-19 cases that were popping up across the state.
The new order places a limit of 10 people for indoor gatherings and 25 for outdoor gatherings. It also requires all high school and university classes to move back online and places a number of restrictions on other activities.
Guess these radical leftists have learned nothing from the last time this stuff was done. Perhaps impeachment is the only way to get them to pay attention.
