New York Legislature Oust Governor
The state assembly of New York by a vote of 79 to 45
taken at 5:15 Wednesday morning voted to impeach Governor
Sulzer for high crimes and misdemeanors in office. The lrvcis
lature met late Tuesday nip;ht to vote on the impeachment pro
ceeding. At first roll call 85 democrats, nine more than the
necessary majority, answered to their names. Less than half
a dozen were expected to vote against the measure. Friends
of Governor Sulzer claim that the assembly had no legal right
to consider impeachment proceedings during an extraordinary
session, called specifically for other purposes and that the gov
ernor will fight to retain the office. It is rumored that Mrs.
Sulzer has confessed as being rea'xmsible for the actions which
brought about the investigation, unknown to the governor.
