From the Philadelphia Inquirer, via NACDL's news of interest:
Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner was impeached by the Pennsylvania House on Wednesday after Republican lawmakers said he engaged in “misbehavior in office” that justifies his removal.
The seven articles of impeachment make a range of accusations, including that Krasner, a Democrat, has fueled the city’s surge in homicides, mishandled criminal cases, and violated the rights of crime victims. The impeachment resolution passed 107-85, almost exclusively along party lines, with one Republican voting against it.
