Retired Houston attorney Barbara Radnofsky has decades of legal and political experience under her belt, but she’s quick to admit that even she didn’t have a clear understanding of impeachment — despite being a political-science student during Nixon’s pre-impeachment proceedings and a partner at Vinson & Elkins during Clinton’s. While researching her book, A Citizen’s Guide to Impeachment, which Mayor Sylvester Turner will introduce at Brazos Bookstore, Radnofsky discovered that misinformation colors our understanding of the process and what an impeachable offense is, which is, simply, an act or omission by a public official that causes harm to society. “What I’m hoping to do is explain what the grounds are so folks can make their own decision,” says Radnofsky. “They can decide whether something causes harm to society. Who’s better than the citizens of America to decide?”
