W. VA. to impeach most of its entire state Supreme Court?

A West Virginia legislative committee has heard 14 potential articles of impeachment against four state Supreme Court justices. The articles were read Tuesday before the House Judiciary Committee at the state Capitol in Charleston. The committee is holding a lengthy debate on a motion to adopt all 14 draft articles.

Suspended Justice Allen Loughry is mentioned in six of the articles. Loughry was indicted in federal court in June on charges of mail fraud, wire fraud, lying to federal law enforcement, witness tampering and obstruction of justice.

Other articles of impeachment involve justices Margaret Workman, Robin Davis and Beth Walker.

Most of the impeachment articles deal with massive and unchecked spending of nearly $4,000,000 on building renovations and lavish office furnishings such as a $32,000 blue suede couch in Loughry's office.

A town my sister once lived in in Kentucky had both the mayor and chief of police in jail. How about that?
