Representative Daryl Metcalfe of Butler County has introduced a resolution of impeachment against Governor Tom Wolf. Metcalfe and 24 other republicans in the state’s house of representatives have signed on as sponsors to the resolution which they say is in response to the governor’s handling of COVID-19. Metcalfe claims the governor’s response hurt more people than the virus has. Bill Patton, spokesman for the House Democratic caucus, is calling it a circus show and Governor Wolf has yet to respond as of the time of this reporting.
