Laser T. Dog was impeached in October 1998.
The articles of impeachment were :
1)Perjury. A box containing three Swedish ginger snaps disappeared from the kitchen table. On repeated questioning, Laser maintained his innocence, accompanied by much tail-wagging.
2)Obstruction of justice. The empty cookie box was found partially chewed on the kitchen floor - a clear attempt to conceal evidence.
3)Perjury. Paw prints were found in the bathtub, but Laser again maintained a blank, innocent expression.
4)Abuse of caninity. Laser abused his position as a dog to shred multiple paper towels.
If convicted, Laser would be removed from his position of Higher Canine Officer. He would remain a pet as a Giant Mutant Hamster Officer.
After consulting with lawyers, Laser offered the following defense to the perjury charges.
Negotiations took place over a possible censure option. In a dramatic deal with House bipeds, Laser avoided impeachment. He spent 11 days in Dog Jail. Laser was also severely censured for his behavior, but as usual managed to forgive himself very quickly.
After Laser was released from Dog Jail, he regained Most Favored Mammal status.
