Gov. Newsom should be Impeached for "Clearly Violat[ing] the First Amendment"

The Epoch Times revealed that CEO Harmeet Dhillon of the Center for American Liberty filed a lawsuit against California Governor Gavin Newsom. The article reported:

"'Criminalizing individual participation at a church, synagogue, mosque temple or. other houses of worship clearly violates the First Amendment,' Dhillon said. 'If a Californian is able to go to Costco... then he or she must be allowed to practice their faith using the same precautions.'"
(Epoch Times, "Let's Reclaim What is Fundamental," April 16-22, 2020)

Can governors be impeached for violating the First Amendment?

It is a fact that "each state's legislature can impeach state officials, including the governor."
(Wikipedia, "Impeachment in the United States")

This means that every Democrat and Republican governor who violated the First Amendment like Newsom did should be impeached.

Moreover, states can also have recall elections to remove governors who violate the First Amendment or for other reasons. For example, Democrat Governor Gray Davis of California in 2003 was recalled.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Mass and the Church as well as for the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

We citizens in California can directly recall a governor. Governor Gray Davis was recalled by the voters in 2003, which gave way to Arnold Schwarzenegger's tenure as Governor.

"'Criminalizing individual participation at a church, synagogue" is a Democrat resume enhancement to a higher office. CA is Democrat controlled. No action will be taken.

Excuses for cowardice and doing nothing.
