West Virginia House committee votes to impeach entire state Supreme Court


A West Virginia House committee on Tuesday reportedly voted to impeach the entire state Supreme Court.

The state's House Judiciary Committee approved 14 articles of impeachment against all four sitting justices of the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals, the Charleston Gazette-Mail reported.

The charges against the sitting justices include "unnecessary and lavish" spending of taxpayer dollars, maladministration, corruption and neglect of duty, according to the newspaper.

For the most part, the justices face allegations that they used state resources and money to line their pockets and fund their lifestyles, it added.
