Texas Legislator Trying to Impeach Criminal High Court Judge

Texas lawmaker Lon Burnam filed the resolution to impeach Court of Criminal Appeals Presiding Judge Sharon Keller today. In 2007 she refused to keep the courthouse open late to give defense attorneys extra time to file an appeal in a capital case.

[Michael] Richard was executed that night by lethal injection for the 1986 rape and murder of a Houston-area woman -- Marguerite Lucille Dixon.

Burnam is a Fort Worth Democrat. Keller is a Republican

He's calling it "neglect of duty." She has been under fire by Democrats and Republicans alike since then.
