Michigan Board of Canvassers Unanimously Approve Recall Petition of Governor Gretchen Whitmer

Great news for freedom-loving patriots.

The petition to recall Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has just been officially approved.

And let me tell you, it hasn’t been easy. Whitmer has been fighting this every step of the way.

The recall is now official and can move forward!


The language in a petition to recall Gov. Gretchen Whitmer for the signing of nine of her executive orders during the COVID-19 pandemic has been approved by the Michigan Board of State Canvassers.

Albion resident Chad Baase, 39, was successful in his third attempt at coming up with “clear and factual” language to move forward with the recall petition process. He and his group — the Committee to Recall Governor Gretchen Whitmer — must come up with more than 1 million signatures from registered voters in 60 days or less to trigger a recall election.

“She didn’t put through effective measures with COVID to ensure businesses didn’t have to close their doors,” Baase said. “Some places couldn’t social distance under the federal guidelines, but many businesses could have stayed open with safety guidelines in place and were forced out of work.

“You can’t take away someone’s income and say you’re eligible for pandemic unemployment but then you can’t speak with anyone. I’m still waiting on my unemployment. They owe me 10 weeks.”

The Board of State Canvassers unanimously approved the recall language Monday, June 8, during a virtual meeting. The four-member bipartisan group unanimously approved the language, but rejected two other attempts to begin recall petitions, including a second petition to recall Gov. Whitmer and one to recall Attorney General Dana Nessel

What’s next?

Well, the number of signatures needed to trigger the recall election is 25% of the votes cast for the office of Governor. More than 4.2 million people voted in the 2018 gubernatorial election.

Chad Basse, who is the author of the recall will now unite groups with the same goal of removing Whitmer and organize events to collect all the needed signatures.
