Beshear Calls Out Signers of Impeachment Petition

FRANKFORT (AP)- Kentucky’s governor has singled out some signers of a petition seeking his impeachment.

Gov. Andy Beshear says one signer helped organize a rally where he was hanged in effigy.

He says another signer posted a video warning God would strike him down for applying COVID-19 restrictions to churches.

Beshear called out the two petition signers Tuesday.

A day earlier, the GOP-led state House formed a committee to review the petition.

It calls for the Democratic governor’s impeachment for lockdown orders meant to combat the pandemic.

The petition was submitted by four Kentuckians.
