Del. Marshall: Seeking Herring impeachment is his duty
A handful of African-American ministers joined Marshall on Tuesday at a Capitol news conference to denounce Herring's decision to back two same-sex couples challenging state laws. They also criticized Herring's backing of a constitutional provision barring gay marriage in Virginia.
The ministers said Herring had misled them about his views on gay marriage when he was a candidate for office.
A spokesman for Herring called Marshall's news conference a "desperate ploy."
Marshall is the General Assembly's most outspoken social conservative. He wants a House of Delegates committee to investigate whether Herring should be impeached for violating his oath of office. House Republicans leaders have said they do not support Marshall's effort.
