This State Is Impeaching Its Entire Supreme Court, Maybe They’re Onto Something
West Virginia is the butt of a lot of jokes, some of them undeserved, but there is something happening there right now that could be a useful lesson for the GOP caucus in Congress. The West Virginia legislature has forced one member of the West Virginia Supreme Court from the bench and seems poised to send the rest packing.
The West Virginia House of Delegates Judiciary Committee has drafted 14 articles of impeachment against the four sitting justices on the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals.
Each justice is charged with “unnecessary and lavish” spending of state dollars to renovate their offices in the East Wing of the Capitol.
Missing from this article is any mention of the $4,000,000 spent on building renovations and lavish office furnishings such as a $32,000 blue suede couch. Blue suede couch, I sh** you not.
Go Wst Virginia. The only ones showing backbone to do the right thing to date.
