House prosecutors say the 63-year-old judge had a gambling problem and began accepting cash and other favors from people with business before his court. He also was accused of lying to Congress and filing for bankruptcy under a false name. Porteous' attorneys argued that his behavior, while troubling, didn't merit impeachment.
One wonders what, exactly, then his attorneys think it would take to warrant impeachment?
