One of the first items on New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s agenda was removing the state’s National Guard troops from the border with Mexico. That caused so much posterior pain for state Rep. Zach Cook that he started an online petition calling for the gov’s impeachment, accusing her of treason. As the Santa Fe New Mexican reports, as of last week it had gathered over 44,000 unverified signatures. Emphasis on “unverified,” since nobody has ascertained how many of those folks might be actual New Mexicans. It’s also worth noting that neither Cook nor any of his colleagues have introduced actual articles of impeachment, which would require some proof the gov had committed an actual offense worthy of that. Because no matter how much pain was inflicted upon Rep. Cook’s backside, that actually isn’t an impeachable offense.
