Federal Impeachment

Charles Swayne

Swayne was a federal district court judge from Florida. He was impeached by the House in December 1904 for submitting false expense claims, making use of a private railroad car, not living in his district as required by law, and abusing the contempt powers of his court. The Senate acquitted him of all charges in February 1905.
