According to reports, the Democrat Governor of California, Gavin Newsom, is about to be recalled. The petition drive has collected 2.1 million signatures and only needs 1.5 million valid signatures to spark a recall election of the governor.
The recall is being driven by Newsom’s botched handling of the COVID crisis and a lockdown that was the most restrictive of any American state. Of course, the lockdown restrictions did not apply to the governor himself.
The Western Journal explains:
Supporters of the recall say they have submitted 2.1 million raw signatures by the Wednesday deadline, pushing them over the 1.5 million valid signatures needed to ensure a recall vote, according to Politico.
A report released Friday by state election officials shows almost 1.2 million voter signatures validated as of last week and an additional 380,000 signatures have not yet been reviewed.
The unreviewed block of signatures is likely to yield the number of signatures needed for the recall vote as the petition currently has an 82 percent validity rate.
Of course, Newsom is not the only governor in trouble these days.
After New York’s Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo ordered nursing homes to take patients with COVID and then allegedly tried to cover up the number of people who died in those nursing homes from the virus, calls are coming in from all sides of the political spectrum for the Democratic governor to be impeached. In addition to the nursing home deaths, several women have stepped forward accusing Cuomo of sexual impropriety.
Fox News reports:
Nearly 90% of New York’s congressional delegation has called for the governor’s resignation or impeachment, as have more than 80% of state senators.
If 76 of the Assembly’s 150 members call for impeachment, that would represent a majority. So far, only 40 are in favor of impeachment while 80 want Cuomo to resign or step aside.
And the Democrat Governor of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer, is facing similar legal problems as she also sent people with COVID to nursing homes.
The Blaze reports:
Whitmer issued an executive order last year that prohibited nursing homes and other long-term care facilities from turning away “residents who tested positive for COVID-19 regardless of whether they were contagious,” WJRT-TV reported.
The problem, of course, is that such facilities typically house society’s most medically vulnerable people.
The exact number of long-term facility residents who died of COVID-19 in Michigan is not known, and state Republican lawmakers say Whitmer’s administration is not disclosing critical data. As of the end of February, state data indicated that more than 5,500 Michiganders had perished from COVID-19 in long-term facilities, WDIV-TV reported, or about one-third of all COVID-19 deaths in Michigan.
