Cleveland.com reported Monday that state Rep. John Becker (R) introduced a resolution containing 10 articles of impeachment against DeWine, claiming the governor — among other things — “violated the separation of powers by having the Ohio Department of Health issue orders outside the scope of its authority that are ‘tantamount to creating new laws.'”
The impeachment documents also accuse DeWine of violating citizens’ civil liberties by issuing a stay-at-home order for Ohioans and violating the First Amendment by mandating that masks be worn in houses of worship.
The outlet pointed to a website set up to promote the group and track which lawmakers are in the support of the measure. GOP Reps. Candice Keller, A. Nino Vitale, and Paul Zeltwanger had signed on as co-sponsors as of this writing.
