State senator wants impeachment proceedings against Horne

Citing his misdemeanor conviction on a traffic accident, state Sen. Steve Gallardo wants the House to look at impeaching Attorney General Tom Horne.Gallardo, a Phoenix Democrat, pointed out late Friday the Arizona Constitution allows public officials to be impeached -- and if convicted, removed from office -- for "high crimes, misdemeanors or malfeasance in office.' And the charge to which Horne pleaded no contest earlier this week is a Class 1 misdemeanor.
