HARRISBURG (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - State Representative Daryl Metcalfe introduced Tuesday a resolution to impeach Governor Tom Wolf.

The Butler County Republican says COVID-19 deaths in nursing homes and the loss of more than 2 million jobs are indefensible.

In a statement Metcalfe said,

“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.“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!“We must not and cannot ignore the more than 3,000 deaths in Pennsylvania’s nursing homes and long-term care facilities that are directly linked to Wolf’s and his secretary’s unconscionable orders to admit infected COVID-19 patients.“We cannot and should not dismiss the social and economic impacts of more than 2 million citizens being forced to file for unemployment; countless families unable to put food on their tables; infringements on free speech, peaceful assembly and private property rights; increasing suicide rates; and the growing list of job-creating businesses that will never recover from the governor’s arbitrary, non-transparent and extreme stay-at-home and business shutdown orders.“Pennsylvania citizens deserve and demand far better than a petulant socialist dictator with a well-documented history of unconstitutional and unlawful misbehavior cowardly occupying the governor’s office. No individual or regime is above the law. The time for Wolf’s impeachment is now!”

Last week, the GOP-controlled General Assembly passed a resolution directing the government to end his emergency declaration.

State Republicans are suing to enforce it and there will be arguments in Commonwealth Court on the 29 of June.
