COLUMBUS – State Representative John Becker (R-Union Township, Clermont County) announced today that he has drafted ten articles of impeachment against Governor Mike DeWine and is asking all 98 of his House colleagues to join him in ending the madness.
The public can easily find and contact their State Representative at ImpeachDeWine.com. The contact form contains sample language for constituents to send to their respective State Representatives to ask them to sign onto the legislation as co-sponsors.
While the General Assembly has attempted to work with the Governor, he has vetoed Senate Bill (SB) 55. He has threatened to veto other reasonable legislation such as SB 1 and House Bill (HB) 618.
Governor DeWine has violated the Ohio and United States Constitutions, as well as multiple sections of the Ohio Revised Code. Among his abuses of power, he meddled in the conduct of a presidential primary election and arbitrarily closed certain businesses, while allowing other businesses to remain open. He later instituted a statewide mask mandate, implementing that requirement as a condition of employment, making Ohio a hostile work environment. The mandate also extended to congregants at places of worship, forcing citizens to choose between worshipping their God and worshipping at the altar of unbridled government. Many Ohioans find the mask mandate offensive, degrading, humiliating, and insulting. There is also evidence that masks can be hazardous to one’s health. Gov. DeWine doubled down when he expanded the mandate to our school-age children, who are less susceptible to COVID-19.
