So you know, the SCJC chairman misspoke during the hearing about their options.
He said they could issue a censure, reprimand, warning or admonition ... but that's a regular case.
After these "formal proceedings," they can only issue a CENSURE, dismiss or recommend removal.
(verified by Seana Willing, who also said the rules are wrong ... not updated ... when they say 6 votes needed to remove. It's 7, like McKetta told the commish.)
