A Michigan court has ruled that a recall effort against Governor Gretchen Whitmer, a woman with no moral or leadership character, can proceed. That’s good news.
However, it is the response from the governor that appears to be the buried lead. Specifically because the statement also included “courts” and the “ballot Box”, the third line of attack from the governor’s office implies acts of violence “on the streets” against her political opposition.
MICHIGAN – Recall petitions against Gov. Gretchen Whitmer can proceed, a Michigan court ruled on Thursday.
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, rejecting one argument made by counsel for the governor as “unpersuasive.”
Whitmer, who had argued these cases did not “adequately describe the authorities cited as reasons for the recall,” plans to appeal the decision, campaign spokesperson Mark Fisk said.
“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. 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,” he told MLive.
