Rep. Nino Vitale
August 24 2020
Articles of Impeachment were announced today and I immediately co-sponsored them. I have received hundreds of calls to my office, in the past 5 months, from people who have lost their jobs, cannot work, cannot feed their families or cannot get the health care they or a family member desperately needed.
Remember when all health care was shut down for 3 months because we were supposedly all going to die of Coronavirus? Well, many people are now sick; really sick. And they will need much more invasive treatment for what has turned into more serious health issues for them.
Articles of Impeachment do not go far enough for me. While it’s a good step, Dictator DeWine needs to be charged and tried for crimes against humanity, in my opinion.A website has been set up so you can see what Ohio Representatives are willing to co-sponsor the Articles of Impeachment.
Go to this web site and follow the process:
My understanding is the names of all reps will be listed there, so all can see who are the true defenders of liberty and freedom and our very way of life.The hundreds and hundreds of phone calls I have gotten and continue to get at my office make me depressed and angry. This oppression has got to stop and I’m fighting it every way I know how.
According to the Ohio Constitution, the Ohio House of Representatives has the sole power of impeachment. A simple majority of lawmakers would need to support the effort for DeWine to be impeached. Then, lawmakers in the Ohio Senate would preside over a trial. Two-thirds of the Senate would have to vote to convict the governor.
Her Life has not been touched by DeWine and so she cares nothing for the regular working people of Ohio.
“It is despicable that anyone who considers themself to be conservative would make an attempt to impeach Governor DeWine. In a time of harsh political division, and an important election year, Republicans should be united,” Ohio Republican Party Chairman Jane Timken said in a statement.
