Louisiana Impeachment Trial Thursday
(LOUISIANA)-- An impeached Louisiana City Councilwoman will argue her case on Thursday.
A hearing for Robbyn Morris is set for 5:30 p.m. at City Hall. It is open to the public. The City Council voted six to two September 26th to impeach Morris. She’s accused of violating Missouri’s open meetings act by secretly recording a closed council session on September Tenth. Morris has said she will fight the allegations.
A judge will oversee the hearing, but the council will have the final vote on whether to let the charges stand. Morris is in the second year of a two-year council term. She has been at odds recently with Mayor Tom Wallace and City Administrator Bob Jenne.
Morris is paid 75 dollars per council meeting. If she’s removed, Wallace could appoint a replacement or wait until voters choose a candidate in next April’s election.
