Louisiana Impeachment Hearing Reset
(LOUISIANA)--An impeachment hearing for a Louisiana city councilwoman is reset for October 15th.
The public hearing will be at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall. It originally was scheduled for October Fourth, but was delayed after a council member said she could not attend.
The City Council voted six to two September 26 to impeach Robbyn Morris. She’s accused of violating Missouri’s open meetings act by secretly recording a closed council session on September 10.
Morris is fighting the allegations. A judge will oversee the hearing, but the council will have the final vote on whether to remove Morris from office. 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.
