CONGRESSMEN CALL FOR CHENEY'S IMPEACHMENT
Today I received an email from Democrats.com with the following message. I find the next to last paragraph extremely telling. Our national media is complicit in the Bush/Cheney crimes. Too much money is at stake and they will not report the truth.
Rep. Robert Wexler (FL-19) and two other Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee - Luis Gutierrez (IL-04) and Tammy Baldwin (WI-02) - today called on the committee to begin impeachment hearings for Vice President Cheney.
They declared, "The charges are too serious to ignore. There is credible evidence that the Vice President abused the power of his office, and not only brought us into an unnecessary war but violated the civil liberties and privacy of American citizens. It is the constitutional duty of Congress to hold impeachment hearings."
The three Democrats wrote an op-ed to announce their position, but none of the nation's leading newspapers would publish it - just as they refuse to include impeachment in their polls, and just as they refuse to publish their own investigations of the crimes of the Bush Administration. Why? Because the Corporate Media is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Republican Party, as it has been since the Reagan Revolution of 1980.
Rep. Wexler needs to collect 50,000 signatures to convince his Democratic colleagues that the American people truly support impeachment hearings. So please sign his petition: WEXLERWANTSHEARINGS
Go to Congressman Wexler's website and sign the petition and pass it on to everyone you know.
Its the right thing to do.
