A judge has ruled that several petitions against Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D) can be moved forward, denying the Governor her bid to stop them. In the ruling, the Michigan Court of Appeals supported the State Canvasser Board’s acceptance of six petitions against the governor and one against Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist, who is also a Democrat.
The two had claimed the petitions did not correctly describe what they used as reasons for the recall and so they will appeal the court’s decision.
This comes as Governor Whitmer has gotten notable scrutiny over her lockdown orders and violating her own mandates many times. The Democrat has also created controversy by allowing several members of her team to violate coronavirus protocols.
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer apologized for breaking her state’s Covid restrictions once again.
Have ordinary citizens who violated Michigan’s restrictions got off by apologizing as well?

On one account, Whitmer was seen eating out with many people who were seen disregarding mask mandates. The large gathering violated the state’s order mandating that all groups be at least 6 feet apart.
