Vote for Impeachment and Protect Your Vote
If our votes are honestly counted on November 7, Democrats will definitely win the House of Representatives and possibly the Senate.
Progressive champion John Conyers (D-MI) will chair the House Judiciary Committee and Henry Waxman (D-CA) will chair the Government Reform Committee. Both have promised to investigate the innumerable crimes of the Bush Administration. When these crimes are fully exposed, we are certain the American people will demand impeachment.
But first we need to elect that majority and make sure the votes are counted. The best candidates to throw your last-minute support behind are those Democrats who are calling for impeachment.
ImpeachPAC Announces New Endorsements
ImpeachPAC is delighted to announce these endorsements, all of whom received $1,000:
  • Sharon Beery (CA-22) challenging Bill Thomas
  • Dr. Bob Bowman (FL-15) challenging Dave Weldon
  • Keith Ellison (MN-05) in a solid Democratic open seat
  • Bill Glass (NC-09) challenging Sue Myrick
  • Florice Hoffman (CA-40) challenging Ed Royce
  • John Laesch (IL-14) challenging scandal-ridden Speaker Dennis Hastert
  • Danny Stover (IL-19) challenging scandal-ridden Page Board chairman John Shimkus
  • Stacey Tallitsch (LA-01) challenging Bobby Jindal
  • James Wright (TX-08) challenging Kevin Brady
  • Steve Young (CA-48) challenging John Campbell
"Impeachment may be taboo in Washington - even in Nancy Pelosi's office," said ImpeachPAC President Bob Fertik, "but candidates from Maine to California believe George Bush and Dick Cheney must be held accountable for their brazen defiance of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. We salute these outstanding candidates and we are proud to support their passionate campaigns."
ImpeachPAC previously contributed $5,000 to six candidates: Tony Trupiano (MI-11), Bill Durston (CA-03), Jeeni Criscenzo (CA-49), Jean Hay Bright (Maine, Senate), and two candidates who have been defeated in primaries: Chris Owens (NY-11) and Carl Sheeler (RI, Senate).
We believe there are more pro-impeachment Democratic candidates running whom we have not heard from - please help us by reviewing our list:

and drop us a note if we missed anyone:

We also need to raise more money to fund these candidates, so please support ImpeachPAC if you can:

Interview With Dennis Loo, Co-Editor of "Impeach the President, the Case Against Bush and Cheney"
"...after Katrina, it became clear that a lot of the scales on some people's eyes in America were washed away by that storm, and by the federal response to it, and it made it possible at that point to conceive of a movement possibly getting strong enough to be able to drive out this régime...."

From Central Florida Veterans For Peace:
Listen to
this mp3 mix of a speech by Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson and The Black Crowes' "Soul Singin'".
It's brilliant and it will get you tapping your toes and searching for impeachment resolutions to promote. What we need you to do is ask all your local college and progressive radio stations to play it, together with some of these PSAs.
