A group of Republican Michigan legislators rallied virtually on Sunday for impeachment hearings against Democrat Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.
State Rep. Matt Maddock wrote in Facebook and Twitter posts that he and several other current and incoming GOP legislators will challenge Whitmer’s “impeachable conduct.”
According to WILX-TV, Maddock’s posts were on the heels of Whitmer’s announcement of new restrictions by the state Department of Health and Human Services that start Wednesday and continue through Dec. 8.
Maddock said Whitmer violated Michigan residents’ constitutional rights, ignored “due process and the legislature,” weaponized “contract tracing databases to aid democrat campaigns,” used children as “political pawns” and did not provide in-person classes for special needs students.
