CINCINNATI — Cincinnati State Representative John Becker announced articles of impeachment were filed against Gov. Mike DeWine.

Becker drafted the articles back in August to “restore the rule of law” back to the state.

On Monday, 12 articles of impeachment were issued by him, along with Representatives Candice Keller, Nino Vitale, and Paul Zeltwanger.

All of the representatives that filed the articles were Republicans, just like DeWine.

The articles allege DeWine has abused his power as governor and has violated both the Ohio and U.S. Constitutions as well as Ohio Revised Code.

“Rather than hearing the cries of Ohioans, Gov. DeWine continues to stifle those cries by finding more inventive ways to use masks to muffle the voices of the people,” Becker said. “He continues to have callous disregard for the fact that his isolation policies have led to a shockingly high number of suicides, alarming rates of drug abuse, persistently high unemployment, and the forced abandonment of the elderly by their loved ones.”
