New Mexico Lawmakers Call For Bush Impeachment!

Don’t ask for the URL on this. I copied it out to send to Tinacoyote, my sister, down in Santa Fe. Sent her my congratulations, too.

Beneath Bush’s folksy-bullshit there’s as much contempt for the electorate as Cheney demonstrated in the CNN interview with Wolf Blitzer. Neither Bush nor Cheney care what people think. They don’t have to: they’re in power and that’s that.

Lawmakers call for Bush impeachment, NM

SANTA FE (AP) -- Two New Mexico lawmakers have introduced a measure calling on Congress to impeach President Bush and Vice President Cheney.

State Sens. John Grubesic of Santa Fe and Gerald Ortiz y Pino of Albuquerque, both Democrats, said the resolution is a serious effort to try to trigger impeachment proceedings.

New Mexico, where lawmakers are meeting until March 17, would be the first state to pass the resolution, they said.

The measure alleges that Bush and Cheney conspired with others to intentionally mislead Congress and the public about the threat posed by Iraq in order to justify the war.

It also cites the administration's warrantless wiretapping program and alleges the torture of prisoners and the denial of constitutional rights to enemy combatants.

A state can't mandate impeachment, but impeachment charges from a state can be forwarded to the U.S. House of Representatives and referred to the House Judiciary Committee, according to impeachment advocates.
