A northern Michigan county commissioner told The Kyle Olson Show this week Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s unconstitutional executive orders are the reason his board backed an effort to impeach her.
“Let’s start with the separation of powers,” Kalkaska County Commissioner Dave Comai said. “The executive branch doesn’t make laws. The legislative branch makes laws.”
He said a legislative process includes evidence, debate, and compromise, while a governor’s executive order does not.
Comai said the economic woes in the county of 18,000 are “just terrible” and are “directly connected” to Whitmer’s lockdown orders.
He said restaurant licensing in the county is down one-third since Whitmer began issuing mandates related to bars and restaurants, limiting capacity and how they do business.
Comai said a declared “state of emergency” does not justify violating the U.S. or Michigan constitutions.
