West Virginia Supreme Court impeachments:
The media reports are complete. Excessive spending was investigated, probably starting with posh renovations to offices. Chief Justice Louhry was indicted by the Feds for using email to defraud for hundreds of dollars across state lines and to cover up larger frauds. The accusations against the justices under investigation sound serious: corruption, gross immorality, and high crimes and misdemeanors. There are no more details for these in the documents.

All this noise and no digging. I'm not even sure if I'm supposed to be shocked or gleeful about these judges getting canned.
What are the news stories with the facts? What are the op-eds that are supposed to tell me what to think so that I can purposefully try to argue against them until I ultimately believe myself or the op-ed?
Why is this fucking place starting to look like /pol/ all over again?
>By law, West Virginia has five Supreme Court justices
> But the bench was reduced to four in July, when Justice Menis Ketchum resigned - abruptly announcing his retirement just as impeachment proceedings were set to begin.
