An effort to impeach Governor Gretchen Whitmer initiated in-part by the local state representative has failed to gain any traction in the legislature. Representative Beau LaFave of Iron Mountain and two other Republican lawmakers Wednesday introduced House Resolution 324 which called for the adoption of four articles of impeachment against Governor Whitmer. The resolution cited what LaFave calls corrupt conduct and violations of her oath of office. LaFave said he felt compelled to introduce the measure after several months of the governor exceeding her constitutional authority, issuing orders that are not in the best interest of the state, and using the pandemic as an opportunity for political posturing. The resolution was forwarded to House Government Operations Committee for consideration, however House Speaker Lee Chatfield has already said he has no plans to advance the impeachment effort, saying it would be a distraction from what needs to be done in the state.
