Justice Beth Walker

Justice Beth Walker is among four West Virginia Supreme Court justices impeached by the House of Delegates in August. The justices have been accused of improper spending. Lawmakers also have raised questions about corruption, incompetence and neglect of duty. Walker faces a single charge of abusing her authority. The charge says she and other justices failed to control office expenses or maintain policies over matters such as working lunches and the use of state vehicles and office computers at home. The House chose not to impeach her for spending $131,000 on office renovations, far less than what some other justices spent.
