You no doubt recall that House members frustrated with Attorney General Thurbert Baker’s refusal to take on the federal government regarding the health care legislation passed on March 21st began circulating Articles of Impeachment. You can hear Baker’s reasoning here.
State Rep. Mark Hatfield (R-Waycross) filed the resolution this morning, which has 31 signers, to impeach Baker.
There is no indication that leadership is backing the resolution now that Gov. Sonny Perdue has chosen to appoint a special attorney general to join with attorneys general from other states in a lawsuit in hopes that the Supreme Court will overturn almost 70 years of precedent stemming from the Progressive Era.
