The Michigan Court of Appeals ruled on Friday that a recall campaign to remove Democrat Gov. Gretchen Whitmar from office can proceed.
According to a Washington Examiner report, “The Board of State Canvassers ‘correctly’ approved the six recall petitions against Whitmer and one against Lt. Gov. Garlin Gilchrist, Judges Kathleen Jansen and Michael Gadola of the Michigan Court of Appeals ruled on Thursday.”
The Daily Wire noted, “Whitmer has also been caught breaking her state’s own COVID-19 regulations. Last week, she was seen in photographs attending a gathering at an East Lansing, Michigan, restaurant with at least ten other people, despite a state rule mandating that only six individuals can sit together inside a restaurant.
“As a result, Whitmer pledged to lift the restriction on July 1st.”
“We plan to appeal this disappointing decision and we fully intend to beat back these irresponsible partisan attacks against the Governor in the courts, on the streets or at the ballot,” reported Whitmar spokesperson Mark Fisk.
“This is part of a massive and coordinated attack by Republicans trying to make the Governor fail and our campaign will strenuously oppose these efforts so the Governor can keep saving lives, reopening our economy and creating jobs,” Fisk said.
Despite Whitmar’s plan to appeal, many across Michigan are ready to see the governor go. Her strict and contradictory leadership during the pandemic has led to second thoughts even among many of the Democrats who voted her into office.
