Just two weeks ago she was the leading contender to being Joe Biden's running mate for the presidency. Now, it looks like her future has retirement from politics in it. Not necessarily voluntary but retirement nonetheless. She has become so unpopular in just 14 days that they have registered a recall petition against her. Her draconian rules during the corona virus crisis has gotten everyone up in arms.
She has now issued orders for Home Depot to stop selling paint, flooring and tiles. Grocery stores can no longer sell seeds for fruits and vegetables. And people are no longer allowed to visit friends and families. Prior to that, she had banned doctors from using hydroxychloroquine to treat corona virus. A week later she was begging President Trump to send hydroxychloroquine to her state.
People just do not believe that you are concerned for their health when you ban the most effective drug in curing corona virus within six days. In tests done all around the world, the numbers are incredible.
The petition reads:
Recall Governor Whitmer. Her failure’s during the Covid-19 Corona Virus is causing more Michiganders to get sick. Closing and banning various non essential business’s and activities while leaving others open. Further promoting the pandemic. She has lied since day one with her #Fixthedamnroads which she has failed to do anything in this regards. The response to #PFAS was negligence and completely removing funding for #PureMichigan clearly shows her lack of anything positive for the State of Michigan.
Legally, the petition is meaningless, but it may indicate an appetite on the part of some Michiganders to remove their governor.
According to Ballotpedia, petitioners need to gather one-quarter of the number of votes in the previous gubernatorial election in order to trigger a recall process.
That equates to 1,062,647 valid signatures being required to put Whitmer’s recall on the ballot.
“Whitmer is more concerned about running for Vice President,” Dylan Raymond wrote as his reason for signing.
Mike Robinson echoed that theme: “She chooses her own political aspirations over the people of Michigan.”
