The people of Michigan are rising up against their state's Democrat governor by demanding the removal of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer over her handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

Citizens have been flooding a petition at Change.org calling for Whitmer's ousting.

The “Recall Governor Whitmer” petition accuses her of gross negligence and failures in handling the COVID-19 crisis.

The petition also alleges that the governor’s measures, such as “closing and banning various non essential business’s [sic] and activities while leaving others open,” are actually “causing more Michiganders to get sick.”

The campaign was launched three weeks ago by John Powell in response to the governor’s draconian extension of a stay-at-home order.

The petition has quickly gathered momentum in past days following Whitmer's raising of penalties for non-compliance to a $1,000 fine and/or six months in prison.

In just the 24-hour period between Monday and Tuesday, the petition garnered more than 50,000 new signatures as citizens rush to express their displeasure with the governor, according to Breitbart.

The total number of signatories has surged past the 220,000 mark, at the time of press.

Along with an extension on the statewide lockdown, Whitmer issued new restrictions on stores.

Her measures limit the number of people in the store at one time to no more than four customers for every 1,000 square feet of customer floor space.

Stores must also cordon off areas dedicated to carpeting, flooring, furniture, garden centers, plant nurseries, or paint.

Commenters wondered aloud what possible health concern could motivate the governor to keep people from planting seeds or repainting parts of their homes.

Michiganders have also accused Whitmer of neglecting their interests while attempting to curry favor with presumptive Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden.

The former vice president has signaled he is considering bringing her on as his running mate.

“Her priorities are no longer the residents of Michigan but her possible position as V.P. for Biden,” wrote Patricia Duncan.

Biden brought Whitmer onto his podcast on April 6, in which he praised her for the job she is doing in Michigan.

“Gov. Whitmer is an outstanding governor. She is one of the most talented people in the country in my view,” Biden said.

“She also is a supporter. She was also a co-chair of my campaign.

"She’s a good friend, but she has been laser-focused, laser-focused on delivering for her state.”

Biden has said he is considering between six and 10 candidates for the role of his running mate, one of whom is Whitmer, and that he is only considering women for the job.
