Md. stops attempted impeachment

By Washington Post editors

UPDATE:
Over objections from Maryland Republicans, House Speaker Michael E. Busch (D) on Wednesday sidestepped an attempt by Del. Don H. Dwyer (R-Anne Arundel) to call a vote on whether to impeach Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler (D) for directing Maryland agencies to recognize same-sex marriages performed elsewhere, Maryland Politics reports.

Despite a Maryland State Trooper stationed outside the chamber in tactical gear and Dwyer's vows to not "go down without a fight," the episode also ended without any of the physical confrontation to which Dwyer had previously alluded, and that had attracted at least six television news crews and more than two dozen reporters to the chamber.

Md. delegate: Impeach state attorney general

A Maryland legislator is calling for the impeachment of the state attorney general, ABC 7 reports.

Del. Don Dwyer (R-Anne Arundel) says he will attempt Wednesday to bring impeachment charges against Democratic Attorney General Doug Gansler over his opinion on recognizing out-of-state same-sex marriages.

The chamber does not have the jurisdiction to impeach the attorney general, but Dwyer said he is willing to risk being removed from the chamber to make his point.

Impeach Don Dwyer for being a bigot and for not being able to separate Church and State.
