The West Virginia House Judiciary Committee voted on Tuesday to impeach all four members of its state Supreme Court.

The panel approved 14 article of impeachment against the sitting justices, according to the Charleston Gazette-Mail, which moves forward the possibility of impeachment for the entirety of the Supreme Court in that state.

“It’s a sad day, and it certainly isn’t a cause for celebration,” Judiciary Chairman John Shott, a Repulibcan, said Tuesday as the articles were distributed to the committee members in the West Virginia House.

The article goes on to state the following:

The charges against Chief Justice Margaret Workman and Justices Robin Davis, Allen Loughry and Beth Walker, include “unnecessary and lavish spending” of taxpayer dollars to renovate their offices, maladministration, and corruption. All four justices are also charged with neglecting their duties to develop and maintain court policies regarding the use of state resources, like cars, computers, and funds.

    Then they should move on to clean up the Federal courts. ANY judge who does not honor their oath to uphold & defend the U.S. Constitution should be impeached and replaced. No excuses.
