First Rove, now Gonzales resigns! It was confirmed just hours ago.
WACO, Tex., Aug. 27 Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales, whose tenure has been marred by controversy and accusations of perjury before Congress, has resigned.
Gozales was at risk of being impeached.
Indeed so are Bush and Cheney.
Attached is an impeachment packet for you to examine and pass on to friends and family.
If you are in favor of impeachment, write to your members of Congress. They need to hear from you!
Many of us feel the case is strong for impeachment–but most Americans don’t fully grasp the
process. The HOUSE votes on articles of impeachment (this is similar to bringing an indictment).
The vote required for impeachment is a simple majority–which the Democrats have, although the
so-called “Blue Dog Democrats” (who are to the right) cannot necessarily be counted upon; the
so-called “RINO” Republicans (moderates who dislike Bush) could be decisive. Once the House
approves articles of impeachment (and the attachment shows what these might be), the Senate
holds a trial to see if there is merit in the case. (You may recall that President Clinton was impeached
by the House but not convicted in the Senate).
A distinguished member of Democrats Abroad Mexico, Beverly Bandler, recently put this excellent summary on impeachment.
