10,000 Signatures to Impeach Malloy

Over 10,000 signatures calling for the governor's impeachment.

Its not easy being governor. Gov. Dan Malloy (D-CT) is facing a billion-dollar-plus deficit, and is stuck in a rut of “modest [economic] growth” in the state.

Now, Change.org has a new petition that has gained over 10,000 signatures calling for the governor’s impeachment.

Started by Zachary Ludecke of Bristol, it’s unclear under what legal grounds such action could be taken. The key takeaway from this petition is that the anger of Connecticut residents is palpable.

Now, it’s no secret Connecticut is blue state. Democratic leaders hold control of key levers in government. That also means, though, that when success or blame is dealt out there is little room to hide.

This petition for impeachment certainly assigns some blame.
