Andrew was hopeful when the 2021 Kentucky Legislative Session started. Almost all Republicans that ran for election in 2020 ran on a promise that they would hold Beshear accountable and rein in his power. While the General Assembly took some steps to put in place laws that would eventually limit the governor’s powers, it was clear that they were refusing to hold Beshear accountable for his unconstitutional actions.
Andrew joined two other citizens to file impeachment claims against Beshear. Chief among them that Beshear should be removed from office for sending KSP to arrest people for going to church.
Andrew’s filing forced the house to form an impeachment committee. The committee did agree that Beshear violated the Constitution, but they refused to take the steps to hold him accountable. They then billed Andrew $44,000 for daring to utilize his First Amendment right to petition for redress.
