Michigan: Online petition calls for Governor recall

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D), who has been attacked by Trump over her criticism for his failure to act on the coronavirus pandemic, has a recall petition on that has 80,000 signatures. As noted before, online petitions do not count and are not really indicative of support (especially since most of the signers may be out of state).

Petitioners would need 1,062,647 signatures to get on the ballot, and thanks to changes in the law enacted by the GOP-led legislatures in 2012, a removal of Whitmer would simply lead to the elevation of the Lieutenant Governor.
