In the lists of reasons Maddock believes Whitmer should be impeached includes ignored court orders

Republican members of the Michigan House of Representatives are proposing articles of impeachment against Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, who recently issued fresh lockdown orders for her state.

Republican State Rep. Matt Maddock announced he was joining with Reps. Daire Rendon (R), Beau LaFave (R), Ryan Berman (R), and Shane Hernandez (R) to move towards impeaching the Democratic governor.

Maddock also noted the support of incoming legislators Ken Borton (R) and Steve Carra (R).

Maddock added those also backing the impeachment include State Sens. Dan Lauwers (R) and Lana Theis (R).

Maddock posted a list of reasons why he believed Whitmer should be impeached.

Here the lists of reasons Maddock believes Whitmer should be impeached for:

  • Ignored court orders
  • Violated our Constitutional rights
  • Completely ignored due process and the legislature
  • Weaponized contact tracing databases to aid democrat 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

The House of Representatives initiates impeachment with the required majority vote.

According to Mlive, Republicans will have a 58-52 majority in the next legislative session.

Three representatives would be appointed to prosecute the impeachment case.

Two-thirds of senators must vote to convict Whitmer so she can be removed.

Republicans hold a 22-16 majority in that chamber, so at least three Democrats would need to vote affirmatively for removal.

As Lansingstatejournal reported, Whitmer on Sunday announced a new range of limitations on indoor gatherings and other activities that will continue for three weeks starting Wednesday.

The order — which runs through Dec. 9 — will also close schools, shutter indoor dining at bars and restaurants, and mandate people to work from home unless it’s impossible to do so.

The order targets indoor social gatherings that health officials say contribute to the spread of COVID-19.

The recent report in the number of COVID-19 cases across the state required a stay-at-home order to mitigate the virus's continued spread, Whitmer said.

“We are in the worst moment of this pandemic to date,” Whitmer said.

“The situation has never been more dire.”
