According to reports, the Republican resolution to impeach Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has now gained support from a county in northern Michigan.

Last week, three Republican members of Michigan’s House of Representatives called for the impeachment of Whitmer over allegations of "corrupt conduct."

Despite the resolution being condemned by Michigan Speaker of the House Rep. Lee Chatfield, the Kalkaska County Board of Commissioners voted four to two in favor of impeachment.

Whitmer has faced huge backlash for her restrictions on small businesses during the coronavirus pandemic.

The governor's lockdown measures angered Republicans after issuing a three-week order restricting indoor social gatherings last week.

Republican Representatives Beau LaFave, Matt Maddock, and Daire Rendon claimed Whitmer was guilty of “corrupt conduct in office and crimes and misdemeanors.”

Rep. Beau LaFave (R) said on Twitter last week:

“Today I introduced Articles of Impeachment against Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer."

“The four articles of impeachment against Gov. Whitmer include failing to respect the separation of powers by exercising power granted to the legislative branch, violating the constitutional rights of the people of Michigan, issuing executive orders against the interests of the people and state, and using state resources to reward political allies."

WATCH:

Chatfield and Republican Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey said they were frustrated that the governor had ordered the partial shutdown on her own but said they were eager to work in a “bipartisan way.”

“As always, we stand ready to act in a bipartisan way when the governor decides it is worth her time,” Chatfield reportedly said in a Sunday statement.

Neon Nettle reported the last month that Whitmer's COVID-19 pandemic shutdown order was "in violation" of the state Constitution, Michigan's Supreme Court has ruled.

The state's Supreme Court ruled that the state of emergency declaration issued by Whitmer over the pandemic is unconstitutional.

The Democratic governor lacked authority under each of the two laws that govern states of emergency in Michigan to extend the state of emergency passed April 30, when her first state of emergency declaration expired, the court determined.
