Borowicz, Everett, Dush sponsor resolution to impeach Gov. Tom Wolf
HARRISBURG – Three local legislators have joined State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe sponsoring a resolution calling for the impeachment of Gov. Tom Wolf.
Metcalfe, a Butler County Republican, introduced the resolution Tuesday.
The resolution has 24 co-sponsors, including State Rep. Stephanie Borowicz (R-76); State Rep. Garth Everett (R-84), and State Rep. Cris Dush (R-66), who is seeking the 25th District Senate seat of Joe Scarnati, who is retiring.
Republican lawmakers, who control the General Assembly, have clashed with the Democratic governor’s management during the coronavirus crisis. GOP lawmakers have argued Wolf’s actions have crippled the state’s economy and they say he has regularly exceeded his authority.
“While these are certainly unprecedented and chaotic times, Gov. Tom Wolf must be held accountable for his actions that have harmed so many of our citizens and violated so many of our rights,” Metcalfe said in a statement released Tuesday. “Wolf’s unconstitutional dictates and Orwellian overreach into our lives and the marketplace has caused immeasurable harm and hardship for far more Pennsylvanians than the virus!”
The resolution’s title: “A Resolution impeaching Thomas W. Wolf, Governor of Pennsylvania, for misbehavior in office.”
Metcalfe began circulating a memo in May to draw support for impeaching Wolf.
