Wednesday, March 29, 2006Back in January, we posted Kagro X's "Forgotten Way to Impeach" wherein he reminded us all of a little known way to bring impeachment to the floor of the US House of Representatives.
Building upon Kagro's research, we at the IBC devised a letter writing campaign and mass emailed hundreds of State Senators and Assemblypersons. (We had some nice responses from various state senators in Vermont.)
Soon thereafter, in one town after another Vermont townships have passed resolutions for the impeachment of George W. Bush.
And now, the Washington Post is starting to notice!
"Democratic committees in at least half of the state's 14 counties have passed resolutions calling for impeachment, citing a rule in "Jefferson's Manual," a book of parliamentary guidelines written by Thomas Jefferson that supplements U.S. House rules.
The anti-Bush movement is "genuinely bubbling up from the grass roots," said Jon Copans, the state party's executive director.
The state Democratic committee is scheduled to decide the issue in a special meeting April 8."
