A county in northern Michigan announced its support of impeaching Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer Friday.
Members of the Kalkaska County, Michigan Board of Commissioners voted 4-2 to introduce a resolution that would call for the impeachment of Whitmer. It will be sent to the Michigan Legislature for consideration.
Many accuse Whitmer of abuse of power and unconstitutional actions amid the COVID-19 pandemic and have expressed outrage at actions taken to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
Kalkaska County Commissioner David Comai said that Whitmer signed “unconstitutional executive orders” that were “the primary cause of the economic crisis Kalkaska County is experiencing,” and are grounds for impeachment, according to reports from WPBN/WGTU.
