Michiganders are furious with their governor’s mismanagement of the COVID-19 outbreak. A petition drive has begun to recall the governor and has already recorded more than 165,000 signatures as of Monday. Sarah Taylor reports at The Blaze:
Last week, Whitmer placed what some voters insisted was a draconian and Orwellian statewide ban on visiting other residences because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
What are the details?
A portion of the Change.org petition reads, “Her failure’s [sic] during the Covid-19 Corona Virus is causing more Michiganders to get sick. Closing and banning various non essential business’s [sic] and activities while leaving others open. Further promoting the pandemic. She has lied since day one with her #Fixthedamnroads which she has failed to do anything in this regards. The response to #PFAS was negligence and completely removing funding for #PureMichigan clearly shows her lack of anything positive for the State of Michigan.”
According to WWJ-AM, however, a petition to recall the governor would “require language approved by the state board of canvassers for circulation,” as well as “signatures of well over 700,000 registered Michigan voters” in order to take the issue of recall to the actual ballot.
