PA House move to impeach embattled Lancaster County sheriff reopens old Kane impeachment wounds

PA House move to impeach embattled Lancaster County sheriff reopens old Kane impeachment wounds

The House Judiciary Committee this week voted on a resolution to begin the impeachment process relative to embattled Lancaster County Sheriff Mark Reese, who has been on a long-term paid suspension since last summer after sexual harassment allegations against him arose.

 

Should the impeachment move forward and be successful, it would be the first impeachment of an elected official in Pennsylvania since PA Supreme Court Justice Rolf Larsen was impeached in 1994.

 

However, it was not the move to impeach Sheriff Reese that drew debate from committee members, rather an amendment filed to the resolution to begin the process drew concern from a number of Democratic members.
