Watch this powerful video from ThinkProgress via Alternet.I love this man for his grit and spunk. His Impeachment Petition is on my sidebar..please take a couple of seconds and sign it if you believe the Big Dick Cheney should be impeached. It’s worse than Watergate he says on the video and he is spot-fucking-on..From the ThinkProgress writeup;
On Tuesday night, Rep. Robert Wexler (D-FL) took to the House floor to urge the House Judiciary Committee to begin impeachment hearings into Vice President Cheney for “high crimes and misdemeanors.” Wexler, who has already acquired nearly 190,000 supporters through his website, explained his next steps:
Tomorrow, I will deliver these names to my colleagues on the Judiciary Committee with a letter to my friend, Chairman Conyers, calling for hearings. I will ask my colleagues to sign this letter … Continuing every day for months, I will publish in the Congressional Record several thousand names of supporters who signed up.
History demands that we take action, because the case against Vice President Cheney is far stronger than the illegality surrounding Watergate.
If you believe this action is needed(and what progressive doesn’t?), please forward this video, or post it on your website with the link to Wexler’s Petition website.
The site started up just a few days ago, and baby..its taken off! From Democrats.com:
Wexler’s goal was 50,000 signatures but with your support, Wexler’s petition passed 100,000!(105736 as of 8:30 pm leftcoast time)
These 7 voted to kill Kucinich’s bill on 11/6, so they need to CHANGE their positions and fulfill their oath of office to defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign AND domestic: Howard Berman (CA-28), Artur Davis (AL-07), William Delahunt (MA-10), Zoe Lofgren (CA-16), Jerrold Nadler (NY-08), Linda Sanchez (CA-39), and Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-20).
Please email all House Judiciary Democrats through this petition:
Wexler is thrilled with your response, and he will hold a virtual town hall meeting on Thursday at 9 pm ET (6 pm PT) on Florida Progressive Radio with Kenneth Quinnell, co-hosted by Democrats.com.
Wexler has the support of two Judiciary Committee Democrats, Luis Gutierrez (IL-04) and Tammy Baldwin (WI-02). Five others are co-sponsors of H.Res. 333/H.Res. 799, Rep. Kucinich’s Articles of Impeachment for Vice President Cheney: Steve Cohen (TN-09), Keith Ellison (MN-05), Sheila Jackson Lee (TX-18), Hank Johnson (GA-04), and Maxine Waters (CA-35).
But that leaves 13 Judiciary Committee Democrats who have NOT called for impeachment hearings. These 6 voted to send Kucinich’s bill to Judiciary on 11/6, so they should publicly support Wexler’s efforts: John Conyers (MI-14), Bobby Scott (VA-03), Brad Sherman (CA-27), Betty Sutton (OH-13), Mel Watt (NC-12), and Anthony Weiner (NY-09).
It won’t take you more than a second or two folks..sign the petition on Wexlers’s site..what do you have to lose?
