Impeachment is a political instrument used against executive branch officers and judicial branch judges. The legislative branch makes its own rules regarding removal of its own members. The only way to achieve conviction is with a political majority.
Where we do have political majority we must also have unity. This is not the case in the Michigan Legislature, but I hold out hope for impeachment of Joslyn Benson.
The state constitution only requires 50% votes to impeach officers under the governor and lieutenant governor. Why don’t we go for the low hanging fruit?
