A notification error is leading election officials to delay the review of petitions taken out against Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D) over her stay at home order. The petitioner has allegedly previously threatened to kill 10,000 people by poisoning the water supply and a family court referees and county judges. The petitioner has previously taken out four recall efforts, including against the former Albion Mayor Garrett Brown.
The petition comes after an online recall petition on alter.org 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.
