Philadelphia DA Larry Krasner impeached by Pennsylvania lawmakers in GOP-led effort: 'Crisis of crime'

Pennsylvania's Republican-led House impeached Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner on Wednesday, further advancing their effort to remove him from office in response to the city's gun violence problem.

The 107-85 vote was largely along party lines following a fiery debate. The articles of impeachment accuse Krasner of "misbehavior in office" and obstructing a legislative committee investigating his office. The Judiciary Committee in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives voted Tuesday to advance impeachment articles against Krasner, setting up Wednesday's vote.

Republican lawmakers have accused him of exacerbating Philadelphia's crime problem by implementing certain criminal justice reform policies and botching certain cases.

"His lack of proper leadership serves as a direct and proximate cause of the crisis currently facing the city of Philadelphia," states House Resolution No. 240, which called for Krasner's impeachment. .........

Romans 12:16-21

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all…do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

So, next move is into the PA senate for [what I guess will be] a trial...?

Do they have the votes to convict and remove him?
