Abstract

This article contains a historical overview of New York's impeachment law reaching back to the 18th century. It covers the 1913 impeachment case of New York Governor William Sulzer, and concludes that New York's impeachment law is unworkable because it does not contain adequate safeguards to protect against legislative abuse. This article criticizes New York impeachment law for its lack of transparency in enumerating impeachable offenses, and makes recommendations concerning amendments to the impeachment law.
