Minnesota: Third petition filed against Governor over stay in place rules

A third recall petition has been taken out against Governor Tim Walz (D), once again over shelter-in-place rules instituted to fight the spread of the coronavirus. State Representative Jeremy Munson is a moderator on the recall effort Facebook page.

The first two petitions filed against Walz were rejected by the Minnesota Supreme Court. Minnesota is a malfeasance standard state and would require petitioners to meet a stringent requirement of malfeasance to get on the ballot. Minnesota has generally reject all recalls since its state law was approved in 1996. However, in 2018 there was a recall against Tracy Councilman Tony Peterson (he survived the vote).

If approved, petitioners would need about 646,000 signatures to get on the ballot.
