An area in northern Michigan threw its support behind a resolution put forward by 3 Republican participants of Michigan’s House of Representatives calling for the impeachment of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer recently.
Despite Michigan Speaker of the House Rep. Lee Chatfield, a fellow GOP participant condemning the resolution, the Kalkaska County Board of Commissioners voted four to 2 for sustaining the initiative Friday, reported Michigan Live.
Whitmer has come under harsh attack for her restrictions on businesses during the coronavirus pandemic, additionaly outraging Republican politicians after she as well as the Division of Health And Wellness and also Human being Services released a three-week order limiting interior social gatherings recently.
Republican Reps Sweetheart LaFave, Matt Maddock as well as Daire Rendon released the impeachment resolution and alledging the gov was guilty of “corrupt conduct in office and crimes and misdemeanors” after the brand-new standards were announced Wednesday.
Michigan has reported spikes in the daily coronavirus caseload over the last few weeks, with cases peaking at nearly six times the daily rate seen during the state’s previous spike in May, according to the Department of Health.
Over 347,000 cases of the virus have been confirmed and more than 9,000 Michiganders have died.
But not everyone in Michigan’s GOP is on board with the impeachment push. Chatfield called it a “distraction from the real things we have to get done in our state.”
