CHARLESTON, WV. (WVNS)– The West Virginia House of Delegates has impeached all four of the state’s Supreme Court justices.
The Republican-led House on Monday night impeached Justice Beth Walker and the other justices for abusing their authority. The article says they failed to control office expenses and not maintaining policies over important matters such as working lunches, the use of state vehicles and office computers at home.
Walker was the last of the four justices to be impeached. She had avoided impeachment earlier when the House voted not to pass an article against her for $131,000 in renovations she made after taking office last year.
Suspended Justice Allen Loughry, Chief Justice Margaret Workman and Justice Robin Davis also were impeached.
Loughry was suspended earlier this year and has pleaded not guilty to a 23-count federal indictment.
