The West Virginia House of Delegates voted last night to impeach all of the justices on the state’s Supreme Court, The New York Times reports. The decision came after Chief Justice Allen Loughry was suspended in June. He now faces a 23-count federal indictment on charges of fraud and false statements. The three other sitting justices were also subject to articles of impeachment, and the court as a whole was impeached for not creating policies to rein in spending by the justices.
