“And I’ve kept yelling since I first commenced it,
I’m against it!”
In A Familiar Exposition of the Constitution, Justice Story suggests that Executives can basically be impeached for anything, not necessarily a statutable offense.I gather it can even be done after they leave office.
But that's the United States Constitution; this is the New York state Constitution, which I gather could have been more clearly written.Impeachment would not have been short-circuited by resignation (and Sulzer did put out feelers) in part because there are other possible penalties besides removal from office, such as a ban on office-holding (appointive + elective) in the future.
