ILLINOIS — Some people are fed up. They say the current Governor of Illinois, J.B. Pritzker, has illegally extended his emergency powers and endangered the welfare of the citizens of Illinois.
They are part of a group formed to gather 750,000 signatures to recall the Governor from office. Counties all across the state are seeing people line up to sign their name on the petition.
They say J.B. Pritzker has failed to perform his duties as Illinois’ Governor.
That he endangered the welfare of the citizens of Illinois by releasing 64 convicted murderers, 143 convicted sex offenders, and 3 sexually dangerous persons from the custody of the Illinois Department of Corrections.
That the Governor failed to uphold section USC 3331 of the Constitutional oath of office when he said: “I do solemnly swear (affirm) that I will support the Constitution of the United States, and the Constitution of the State of Illinois.
That J.B. Pritzker violated the Illinois Emergency Management Agency Act, found in 20ILCS 3305/7, and in other current court cases against the Governor.
They also claim the Illinois Governor is in violation of the Disorderly Conduct and Child Endangerment Act as found in section 720 ILCS 5/26-1(a) and section 720 ILCS 5/12-5), due to the Governor releasing the 4000+ prisoners without notifying States Attorney offices, local authorities, and/or victims families.
