West Virginia Moves to Impeach Its Entire Supreme Court

Filed under: General — JVW @ 2:56 pm

[guest post by JVW]

Well now, this is the first I have heard of this: legislators in West Virginia are set to vote on articles of impeachment for their entire remaining state supreme court. Let’s turn to Fox News for the details:

The [state’s House Judiciary] [C]ommittee filed 14 articles of impeachment against the four judges on Tuesday, and they will now go to the full House of Delegates for a vote.

The articles allege the justices – Chief Justice Margaret Workman and Justices Allen Loughry, Robin Davis and Elizabeth Walker – have engaged in corruption, incompetency, neglect of duty, maladministration and certain high crimes.

The justices are also accused of “wasteful spending of taxpayer funds on lavish office renovations,” using public vehicles for personal matters and creating a plan to pay certain senior judges more than is lawful, the committee said.

[. . . ]

Aside from the articles of impeachment, Loughry was previously suspended for allegedly repeatedly lying about using his office for personal gain. He pleaded not guilty in federal court in June to multiple counts involving alleged fraud.

His trial is expected to begin in early October. If convicted, he faces up to 395 years in prison and $5.5 million in fines.

[. . . ]

Normally, West Virginia has five Supreme Court justices who are elected to serve a 12-year term, NPR reported.

However, Menis E. Ketchum resigned from the state Supreme Court in July after he was accused of alleged federal wire fraud. He pleaded guilty to a felony charge of defrauding the state and faces up to 20 years in prison, according to WSAZ-TV.

West Virginia Democrats are skeptical of this action, believing it has largely been undertaken in order to allow Republican Governor Jim Justice to replace the four jurists (the one who resigned will be replaced in the November election). Justices for the Supreme Court of Appeals in the Mountaineer State are elected to twelve-year terms. Justices Workman (term expires in 2020) and Davis (term expires in 2024) are both Democrats; Justice Loughry (term expires in 2024) is a Republican; and Justice Walker (term expires in 2028) was elected with no party preference, though she had previously run as a Republican. Former Justice Ketchum, whose term was set to expire in 2020, was elected as a Democrat.

The articles of impeachment are spelled out here. Loughry comes off the worst in them, as noted in the Fox article, while the other three are accused largely of wasting taxpayer money on their offices with Davis and Workman also standing accused of agreeing to overpay semi-retired judges on senior status. It appears that Walker is kind of caught up in the maelstrom, with the only complaint against her being wasting money on office renovations, which would seem like small potatoes in the state that celebrates the wasteful spending of Senator Robert Byrd. A local media source, WV MetroNews, reports that the sums spent for office renovations range from over $500,000 by Chief Justice Davis to a little over $110,000 by Justice Workman. It’s worth noting that the optics of this lavish spending look pretty bad in light of a two-week strike for higher wages by the state’s teachers this past spring.

The issue of these justices’ continued employment will be brought to the WV House chamber on Monday. On the one hand, I find impeachment and removal to be a very serious matter, especially when the legislative branch targets the judicial branch. On the other hand, we’ve had plenty of examples of judges who operate as if they are accountable to nothing other than their own whims and desires, so every once in a while it is probably good to let them know that they can’t just get away with everything all of the time.

    Wait for it…

    A third candidate (sore GOP loser Blankenship) in the Senate race. He is appealing the ruling that he is prohibited from being placed on the ballot. The appeal now rests with SCOWV.

    If he gets on the ballot, Dem Manchin’s re-election is assured.

  7. Boy, I’ve never heard of high public officials lavishing money on themselves. To think that this goes on! Now, maybe $500K is a bit much in a state where that buys you a minimansion, but a good desk costs money. Also, carpet, drapes and the odd bit of 300 year-old mahogany. You don’t expect them to shop at Ikea, do you?

    Prediction: Walker escapes, then resigns. The rest hang.

  16. @17. ‘Space Force’ is stupid. ‘Space Force’ is dumb. And it is redundant.

    The USAF already does it w/Space Command, the other branch services also have space ops tailored to their specific needs and the dark agencies employ space ops as well. And in an era w/a $23 trillion debt, it would be an expensive waste of scarce resources, particularly to create another bureaucracy.

    China will never finance it; Congress won’t fund it. And Buzz will be dead.

  17. “[S]pace science, like nuclear science and all technology, has no conscience of its own. Whether it will become a force for good or ill depends on man, and only if the United States occupies a position of pre-eminence can we help decide whether this new ocean will be a sea of peace or a new terrifying theater of war. I do not say the we should or will go unprotected against the hostile misuse of space any more than we go unprotected against the hostile use of land or sea, but I do say that space can be explored and mastered without feeding the fires of war, without repeating the mistakes that man has made in extending his writ around this globe of ours.

    There is no strife, no prejudice, no national conflict in outer space as yet. Its hazards are hostile to us all. Its conquest deserves the best of all mankind, and its opportunity for peaceful cooperation many never come again.” – President John F. Kennedy, Rice University, September 12, 1962

    Astronaut Buzz Aldrin is embroiled in a public feud with his kids over dementia — and the future of his legacy

    ‘Aldrin’s lawyer alleges that his kids are taking advantage of the 88-year-old, but his family says his mental health is in decline. Buzz Aldrin, the former NASA astronaut who was the second man to step foot on the moon, is embroiled in a legal battle with his children. Aldrin’s taking aim at his son Andrew, his daughter, Janice, and his former business manager, Christina Korp. He’s arguing that they’re taking advantage of him by stealing money and slandering him by saying he has dementia. Aldrin also alleges his family prevented him from getting married for the fourth time, the BBC reported. Aldrin’s kids said in a statement that they were saddened by the suit and felt it was “unjustifiable.” Aldrin’s bitter personal battle hinges on his mental health.’

    It’s Buzz and his judgment that’s ‘hardest hit.’

  31. @26. Meh. It’s literally ‘retro-fire.’ Google Almaz. Then Manned Orbiting Laboratory (MOL) and the USAF’s X-20 Dyna-Soar projects.

    Almaz was a crewed Russian ‘spy satellite/space station’ from the late 60’s/mid 70’s era cancelled long ago. And it was armed w/a cannon:

    “In addition to reconnaissance equipment, Almaz was equipped with a unique 23mm Rikhter (factory index 261P or 225P) rapid-fire cannon mounted on the forward belly of the station. This revolver cannon was modified from the tail-gun of the Tu-22 bomber and was capable of a theoretical rate of fire of 1800-2000 (up to 2600) rounds per minute. Each 168 gram (ammo 23-OFZ-D-R ) or 173 gram (ammo 23-OFZ-G-R) projectile flew at a speed of 850 m/s relative to the station. The cannon was tested at the end of the mission by firing 20 rounds, when the station was operating in unmanned mode. To aim the cannon, which was on a fixed mounting, the entire station would be turned to face the threat. The Almaz series remain, to this day, the only known armed, crewed military spacecraft ever flown. Salyut 3/OPS-2 conducted a successful remote test firing with the station unmanned due to concerns over excessive vibration and noise.” – wikispace

    The Russian project and the American counterpart, the USAF ‘MOL’ program, were featured in a NOVA doc some years ago titled ‘Astrospies.‘ Most of the American military astronauts trained for MOL flew aboard the space shuttle instead. One ran SDI for a time and another became NASA administrator. Both the U.S. and Russian projects were shot down for the same reasons- too expensive and automated spysats could do it cheaper w/o risking human life.

    ‘Space Force’ is not only a dumb idea- it has been shown to be an expensively dumb idea.

  34. “Both the U.S. and Russian projects were shot down for the same reasons- too expensive and automated spysats could do it cheaper w/o risking human life.”

    Sounds like you’re playing very much to a particular personality type:

    “The passion and the daring of these engineers was as remarkable as their talent. Time after time they had to shake off the meddling hands of timid souls from back east. The contribution of MIT to Project Mercury was minus one. The minus one was Jerome Wiesner of the MIT electronic research lab who was brought in by Kennedy as a special adviser to straighten out the space program when it seemed to be faltering early in 1961. Wiesner kept flinching when he saw what NASA’s boondockers were preparing to do. He tried to persuade to forfeit the manned space race to the Soviets and concentrate instead on unmanned scientific missions. The boondockers of Project Mercury, starting with the project’s director, Bob Gilruth, an aeronautical engineer from Nashwauk, Minnesota, dodged Wiesner for months, like moonshiners evading a roadblock, until they got astronaut Alan Shepard launched on the first Mercury mission. Who had time to waste on players as behind the times as Jerome Wiesner and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology…out here on technology’s leading edge?”


    Very familiar!

  36. Steve Bannon apparently quit drinking and feeling sorry for himself for a while:

    “Obama came in and had the stimulus, almost a trillion dollars, and nobody knows where the money went. Where’s all the value-added jobs? Where are my hospitals? You know, Robert Moses built stuff. We spent a trillion dollars — did we just repave everything? I mean, seriously, it’s a trillion dollars. Where’s all our great stuff? It looks like the same place it was ten years ago. It’s worse than Afghanistan as far as the use of proceeds.

    Where do you say it went?

    I think it went to bail out the wealthy. I think it went into this stock-repurchasing thing, I think it went into supporting real estate and things like that.

    There’s a direct correlation between the factories that left, the billets and jobs that left with them, and the opioid crisis. This is what the Democrats miss: Tariffs are more than economics, it’s about dignity and self-worth. You’ve got to get those jobs back. These guys said they’re not coming back. I go, “Is that a law of physics?” You treat this like the second law of thermodynamics. The jobs get shipped over there for financial reasons, we can bring them back. Those jobs can come back, and they’re going to come back. You’re seeing them already coming back today. Now we’re telling guys, “You can build your factory here, or we’re going to throw big tariffs on you.””

    I apologize in advance to any whose prior deeply held religion or bank account forestalls them from talking about t-riffs.

    “Here’s the concept of right-wing populism. If the ’80s and the way we got in this debacle was this radical idea of maximization of shareholder value, here’s what right-wing populism stands for. It’s very simple concept. We’re going to maximize the value of citizenship. We’re going to maximize citizenship value. If you’re an American citizen, you get a special deal. I don’t care if you’re Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, black, white, red, pink, green. I do not care. If you’re an American citizen, you get a better deal.

    Here’s how many H-1B visas I want: none. Until we get Baltimore, Detroit, and St. Louis with, you know, youth unemployment down to zero, and people making high value-added jobs, I don’t need any foreigners. And I’m not a racist. What I want is our citizens to get the jobs. Right now illegal immigration is used as nothing more than a scam to suppress workers’ wages.”

    This bears all sorts of repeating.

The NASA of that era was extremely well-financed, Ivan. Besides, ‘our Germans were better than your Germans.’ Steppe up your game, Red– and be proud of your R-7, Vostok and Voshkod days, your Soyuz, Gagarin, Leonov and Korelev- or Vlad will spike your vodka ration w/some nasty stuff and turn your screwdriver into a deadly hammer and sickle.

  47. 51. Agree. Many of them were peppered through the U.S. aerospace industry in key positions thanks to Von Braun’s influence back then– and Operation Paperclip. Recommend Anne Jacobsen’s book on same. Revisit what happened to Arthur Rudolph, post Apollo. Kurt Debus ran KSC for years and died before his Nazi past was publicly revealed; Dornberger, Von Braun’s ‘protector’ was at Bell for a long time as well. Had Von Braun lived he likely would have been subjected to something akin to what Rudolph experienced. It was WH advisor David Gergen who suggested to President Ford that he not award Von Braun the ‘Medal of Freedom’ for what we now know are ‘obvious reasons.’ There will never be a USPS Von Braun postage stamp issued, either, for the same reason. Still, Eisenhower, JFK, LBJ and Nixon made use of them all. Expedience.

    DCSCA (797bc0)

  48. Well he was a visionary no doubt, perhaps the real life version of Dr. Zola it was Michael neufeld which laid bare many of these details. Probably not Rudolph was not a household name, he didn’t have a 20 year guest appearance on abc.

    narciso (d1f714)

  49. Neufeld’s tomes on VB and ‘The Rocket And the Reich’ are quite good. Suggest Anne Jacobsen’s as well- a little less ‘sugar’ in it and quite revealing in terms of names and where they worked. Rudolph and Von Braun were obviously aware but closed an eye- and VB’s natural, on camera charm skilled him on how to answer questions be it to the press, Congress or Walt Disney. Experienced it first hand- met him years ago not long before he died; but Debus was a genuinely ruthless Nazi bastard. Utterly amazed, given his Reich history, he was able to get away w/running KSC all those years. Again, expedience.

    All of which has *what* to do with the fact that you’re imitating the tone and argumentative style of the most useless personage on the project, a man who could just as easily have been employed as the proverbial ‘wrecker’ by USSR infiltrators? (Lefties always inveigh loudest about the crimes they’re MOST guilty of, since their first thought is to accuse people about what THEY would do.)

    As usual, DCSCA’s throwing out a bunch of facts that had absolutely nothing to do with the point at hand, possibly to burnish his credentials as a guy with INSIDE INFORMATION.
