According to an email obtained by News Talk 830 WCCO Political Analyst Blois Olson, new state Representative Erik Mortenson (R-55A) along with the North Star Liberty Alliance are looking to draft language to impeach Minnesota Governor Tim Walz.

The email states that the NSLA is working closely with the most conservative Representatives and Senators to impeach the Governor, calling him a "tyrant." Representative-elect Mortensen is "all-in" on bringing the articles of impeachment to the floor, according to the email.

The email encourages action by signing a petition and sharing it with everyone they know.

In the history of the United States, only eight Governors have been forced out of office by impeachment. The most recent was Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. There has never been an impeached Governor from Minnesota.
