There is a democratic mechanism for removing Governor Abbott. Texas seems to lack a recall mechanism outside of election.

While there might be room in a Westminster-style system for petitions to oust individual elected officials, it’s not clear who this petition would be aimed at in a Texan context. Is there anyone Abbott answers to, other than the voters at election time?

If it is found that he committed an "impeachable" offense, he can be impeached.

Impeachment and removal from office are two separate processes.

I'm well aware of that....Impeachment is only an indictment.

Need I remind you that I work in a courthouse?

This is the only way to get him out given voter suppression and gerrymandering, without having to worry about Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick taking over.

I hate that as*hole. I wish someone would flip his chair over. It would be as glorious as when Anita Bryant was pied in the face.
