(1995) In attorney general's quo warranto action seeking ouster of secretary of state, court suspended secretary of state from exercising the duties of her office pending trial for impeachment while leaving all other emoluments of office, including salary, in effect. The only method provided in the constitution for removal from office of statewide elective official is impeachment. Legislature is without authority to enact statutes that automatically provide for the removal from office of any elective executive official of the state. State ex inf. Nixon v. Moriarty, 893 S.W.2d 806 (Mo. en banc).
