Minnesota Looks to Oust Bad Judges
Legislators say they’ll impeach, remove questionable judges
By Nancy Lazaryan
In response to dozens of petitions by the citizens of Minnesota, an ad hoc committee has been scheduled to hear the evidence of the corruption within the Minnesota judicial branch.
The ad hoc committee was formed because the chairmen of the Senate and House committees that oversee matters of the judiciary have refused to hear the citizen petitions.
The evidence given to the ad hoc committee is massive and includes transcripts being altered, bribery, extortion, denial of access to the grand jury and numerous felonies by certain district and appellate court judges. Bills of impeachment against many judges will be brought.
Never before in the history of the state of Minnesota, and perhaps the nation, have the legislative committees charged with overseeing the matters in the judiciary refused to listen to the evidence of crimes being committed by judges.
Article Six, Section Nine of the Minnesota Constitution clearly shows it is the intent of the people for the legislature to discipline the judicial branch. The courageous legislators who have agreed to participate in the ad hoc committee number over a dozen and more are joining as citizens from across the state meet with their legislators.
