A state lawmaker has reiterated his call for the impeachment of a federal judge who plans to order Ohio to recognize out-of-state gay marriages.
On Friday, Black said he plans to issue a ruling April 14 forcing the state to recognize the marriages of gay Ohio couples who have wed in states that allow same-sex marriage.
Becker said in a news release Monday that Black has allowed "personal political bias to supersede jurisprudence."
Becker has filed a resolution for Congress to impeach Black.
Black has declined to comment on Becker's efforts.
Congress has removed only eight federal judges in history.
