Why are we moving so quickly on impeachment?

GOP scaremongering persuaded Nancy Pelosi to declare impeachment "off the table." She even pledged there would be no impeachment on "60 Minutes." But after Election Day - assuming a Democratic takeover of the House - we are determined to put Impeachment back "on the table" over the objections of the Republican Party, the GOP-controlled corporate media, and cowardly Democrats. Pelosi has a 100-day plan to pass "positive" legislation, but she will get a rude shock when Bush nullifies her bills with unconstitutional signing statements. With 51 percent of Americans supporting impeachment (according to Newsweek) and an election just behind us, the moment seems ideal to create the public pressure needed to allow those Members of Congress who favor impeachment to act.

Grounds for impeachment are detailed in our petition: //www.democrats.com/peoplesemailnetwork/88

We are looking for suggestions and proposals for changes and additions to the following tentative plan:

1. Declare a mandate for Impeachment based on election results, exit polls, and local impeachment referenda in CA, IL, WI, and VT.

2. Start a grassroots petition drive to collect 1 million signatures. (Each group keeps the names and contact info it collects, as well as Emailing it to us to add to the petition, and we pay $0.25 per valid Email address.) //www.afterdowningstreet.org/petition

3. Form Impeachment Committees in 435 Congressional Districts to lobby every Member of Congress: //www.afterdowningstreet.org/cdic

4. Hold Town Hall Meetings and rallies on impeachment around the country on December 10th (Human Rights Day): //www.afterdowningstreet.org/december10

5. Pass Impeachment resolutions in state legislatures, cities, towns, unions, political parties: //www.afterdowningstreet.org/resolutions

6. Expand our Citizens Impeachment Commission to add prominent citizens, celebrities and bloggers: //impeachpac.org/citizens

If you would like to be listed on the Citizens Impeachment Commission or want to recommend someone else to include, please send that information to david @davidswanson.org

If you are available to speak at an event on December 10th, please let us know and tell us what contact info for you can be posted publicly and what area of the country you can speak in.
