Pennsylvania Republican Calls For Dems To Be Ousted From Supreme Court After Ruling

Republican Cris Dush, a Pennsylvania state representative, is calling for the impeachment of five Democrats on the state Supreme Court after they ruled the state congressional map so heavily favored the GOP that it violated the state's constitution. The justices have given lawmakers until February 9 to present a new map to Gov. Tom Wolf (D), who will have until February 15 to approve it. If an agreement isn't reached by the deadline, the court will submit its own proposal for the redistricting, saying the new map could be expected by February 19.
