Well, it looks like Gretchen Whitmer’s radical rule over Michigan could be coming to an end.
Whitmer has been holding the residents in her state hostage with her use of “emergency powers” to shove any COVID related mandate down Michigander’s throats.
But it looks like those powers are about to be stripped away…
LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, faced with lawsuits challenging her use of emergency powers to fight the coronavirus, could continue to prevail in court.
But she may be unable to stop a Republican maneuver that would rescind a 75-year-old law that has enabled her to issue and lift COVID-19 restrictions unilaterally. A ballot drive said Friday it was in the “home stretch” after collecting more than 400,000 signatures in just two months. Its goal is 500,000.
If at least 340,000 signatures are deemed valid by the state elections board, the GOP-controlled Legislature would likely repeal the 1945 law rather than let it go to a 2022 public vote. The Democratic governor could not veto the initiated bill. A 1976 law, which requires legislative approval to extend a state of emergency, would remain intact.
“No one should think that allowing a politician to have unlimited power for an unlimited duration is a good idea,” said Fred Wszolek, spokesman for Unlock Michigan. He urged people to consider if they would be OK with 2018 gubernatorial candidate Bill Schuette or President Donald Trump, both Republicans, wielding emergency powers permanently with no need to consult lawmakers.
This is fantastic news!
Whitmer’s tyrannical rule over Michigan is finally coming to an end.
I’m the residents there are beyond relieved, and they have the GOP to thank.
