House GOP leader open to impeaching Supreme Court justices (IowaIndependent)
If the people of Iowa demand that the remaining four justices on the state Supreme Court be impeached, Speaker-elect Kraig Paulsen (R-Hiawatha) said Wednesday he would not stand in the way.
Last month, Iowans voted to oust three state Supreme Court justices who were up for a retention vote due to the 2009 ruling that legalized same-sex marriage. The other four justices were not on the ballot.
During an interview with Christian radio host Steve Deace, Paulsen said the lesson of the judicial retention election is that Iowans want a voice in the definition of marriage, and also that they expect the legislature “to live up to its constitutional responsibility and ensure we’re not rolling over any time the courts want to boss us around.” But just because Iowans decided to remove the judges doesn’t necessarily mean they want the legislature to step in and remove the rest.
