90,000 Sign Onto Wexler Call For Impeachment Hearings

Wexler Wants Hearings, where Judiciary Committee members Robert Wexler (D-FL), Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) and Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) call for impeachment hearings for Vice President Cheney, has almost 90,000 signatures as of Monday afternoon. If you haven't already, please sign it—the more people who do, the more likely it is big online groups will jump in and make it a cause of their own. Then we could be talking about 500,000 signatories...which in turn would make room for all kinds of good things.

Wexler Wants Hearings does not have a privacy policy.

MM does have a point.

however, this can only be good news.

90,000 isn't so many. That's only one signature for every time Caps-Lock Mike has asked us to call Pelosi's office.

they need 9,900,000, but falling short thus far is no excuse to not at least sign up. like ole Jon Schwarz sez, hope(fulness) is a dispositional thing.

give them your front-door email address, the one you give to all those dreary sites who want you to sign up before you can access their pages.

There are times when leaders get too power crazy -we had Nixon and now we have Bush/Cheney. We have got to stop them in their tracks.

I cannot find anything actually connecting to Wexler.
Looks like a possible scam.

"I cannot find anything actually connecting to Wexler."

true, until you hit the contribution link, which takes you directly to Wexler's campaign site.
