State lawmakers in West Virginia voted this week to impeach all four remaining state Supreme Court justices. The justices were embroiled in a spending controversy, and one of them, Allen Loughry, faced a 23-count federal indictment. The articles of impeachment said Loughry, Beth Walker, Margaret Workman, and Robin Davis failed to control expenses, including more than $1 million in renovations to their individual offices. Republican Gov. Jim Justice will appoint new justices to replace any who are convicted.
