de la Vega, Lindorff and McGovern coming to Olympia, Feb. 20th

Elizabeth de la Vega, David Lindorff, and Ray McGovern will be the featured speakers at the Constitution in Crisis: the Case for Impeachment. It will be held on February 20, 2007, 7 p.m. at the Washington Center for the Performing Arts and is FREE! Come to Olympia
The Citizens' Movement to Impeach Bush/Cheney is convening a "town hall meeting" on February 20, 2007 to discuss impeachment. This free event will be held at the Washington Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Olympia and will begin promptly at 7: p.m.

Three special guests, Elizabeth de la Vega, David Lindorff and Ray McGovern, will present their perspectives and engage in a panel discussion as part of the event.
Elizabeth de la Vega is a former federal prosecutor with more than 20 years of experience and recently published United States v. George W. Bush. Taking on Bush's use of fraudulent information to take us into war, she presents the case she would make before a grand jury based on the evidence already in the public record.
Award-winning investigative reporter Dave Lindorff has been working as a journalist for 33 years. His extensive research culminated in a co-authored book, The Case for Impeachment, outlining numerous impeachable offenses and arguing for the necessity to defend the Constitution.
Ray McGovern, a 27-year veteran of the Central Intelligence Agency, has organized the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity; an advocate of impeachment, he has been outspoken in opposing the use of torture and the use of fraudulent information to justify the war in Iraq.

The authors will be signing books and their books will be for sale at the event.

Donations Needed to Support This Event
The City of Olympia has given us the use of the beautiful Washington Center for the Performing Arts. However, this use prohibits us from charging admission, asking for donations or doing any fundraising at the event. We have to fly the speakers out here and cover related costs to putting on this event (like insurance for the event). If you can help us out, please send a donation to:
