New Calls For Impeachment
When the Kennebec County Democratic Committee debated the pros and cons of a resolution endorsing the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Cheney, they "rather quickly ran out of cons," said Chairperson Rita Moran. The resolution passed easily, and the Maine committee isn't alone in its desire for accountability.
In New England, where three of Massachusetts' 10 House members have called for the investigation and possible impeachment of President Bush, and residents in four Vermont towns voted last month at annual town meetings to impeach the president for lying, such an action is becoming far from uncommon.
Illinois State Rep. Karen Yarbrough recently "sponsored a resolution calling on the General Assembly to submit charges to the U.S. House so its lawmakers could begin impeachment proceedings." California Assemblyman Paul Koretz "has submitted amendments to Assembly Joint Resolution No. 39, calling for the impeachment of President George W. Bush and Vice President Richard Cheney."
