A “growing list” of Michigan state lawmakers are calling for Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s impeachment over her handling of the coronavirus.
Michigan state Rep. Matt Maddock, a Republican, tweeted Monday that he and several other state lawmakers will support legislative hearings potentially to remove Whitmer from office. Maddock’s announcement comes after Whitmer placed the state under new lockdown restrictions despite the Michigan State Supreme Court throwing out her emergency orders.
“Today, myself and a growing list of Michigan Legislators have decided that [Whitmer] has crossed the line and will be calling for #ImpeachWhitmer hearings. The list of violations is long and the call is overdue,” Maddock said.
