Bob Marshall Calls Impeachment Of Virginia Attorney General His Duty

Play associated audio

Republican Delegate Bob Marshall says it's his duty to try and pursue impeachment proceedings against Attorney General Mark Herring.

A handful of African-American ministers joined Marshall to denounce Herring's decision to back two same-sex couples challenging a constitutional provision barring gay marriage in Virginia.

The ministers accuse Herring of misleading them about his views on gay marriage when he was a candidate for office.

A spokesman for Herring called Marshall's news conference a "desperate ploy.''

Marshall is the General Assembly's most outspoken social conservative. He wants a House of Delegates committee to investigate whether Herring should be impeached for violating his oath of office. House Republicans leaders have said they do not support Marshall's effort.
