January 2, 2008 -- Today Steve launched a new feature on his campaign'?s website, urging his supporters to join the national petition to demand the House begin hearings on an impeachment resolution of Vice President Dick Cheney. The petition, launched last month by Representatives Robert Wexler (D-FL), Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), and Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), has almost passed the 175,000 signature mark in just three weeks. Yet despite this, the mainstream media has virtually ignored it. |
Steve declared his support for impeachment investigations in September 2007, citing false statements leading up to the war and the warrantless wiretapping of American citizens in apparent contravention of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.
As Steve said in a statement today:
"Representatives Wexler, Gutierrez and Baldwin are right to demand that the Congress not ignore this solemn responsibility. Impeachment should never be taken up lightly or for political gain, but in this case the evidence is compelling. Each week, it seems, we are presented with another example of how this Administration, and this Vice President in particular, consider themselves above the law and accountable to no one. If this Congress can'?t or won?'t hold this President accountable, who will?"
