The president’s frustration echoes that of Republicans in the state Legislature, including Butler County Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, who said May 15 he will introduce an impeachment resolution for the governor over his handling of the COVID-19 crisis.  

 

“His focus on restraining business is particularly disturbing, as the majority of deaths due to the pandemic have been residents of long-term care facilities,” he said. “The governor should have focused his attention there, but he has entirely failed to implement a comprehensive state plan to protect our most vulnerable citizens who reside in nursing homes, which have had inadequate supplies of personal protective equipment and testing kits throughout the outbreak.”

 

Others have been less critical, though still “disappointed” by Wolf’s unwillingness to sign bills that would put tens of thousands of workers---from real estate agents to animal groomers to hair stylists---back on the job, ahead of his phased schedule.
 
Wolf, for his part, seems unfazed by the impeachment calls.

 

“I’m not a lawyer, but I can’t wait to see the legal arguments that might be put forward in that case,” he said.
