Michigan: Petition language approved against Governor

Petition language has been approved against Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D), after they were previously twice thrown out by the Board of State Canvassers.  The petitioner cited the COVID-19 shut downs and a decision not to remove Jackson Sheriff Steve Rand for the Governor and the Flint water crisis for the Attorney General (who is not handling that criminal action).

A notification error had lead election officials to delay the review of petitions taken out against over her stay at home order. The petitioner is alleged to have 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.

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.

There is also an attempt to recall the Attorney General Dana Nessel (D), though no word on how that has worked.
