Arizona was part of the movement as long as 6 years ago

Not long after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court threw out the state’s Republican-drawn congressional map earlier this year — a boon for Democrats who hope to flip control of the U.S. House in November — some Republicans state legislators came up with an idea. They proposed impeaching the justices who signed on to the ruling.
The impeachment effort targeted justices Christine Donohue, Kevin Dougherty, Debra Todd and David Wecht, all of who were elected as Democrats and agreed that the old map was an impermissible partisan gerrymander.
The Republican lawmakers said they wouldn’t target Justice Max Baer, a Democrat who disagreed with the majority on procedural grounds, or the court’s two Republicans, Sallie Updyke Mundy and Chief Justice Thomas Saylor.
