Brattleboro to vote on war crimes charges for Bush, Cheney

Print More

Brattleboro residents will decide on Town Meeting Day if President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney should be indicted and arrested for war crimes and other charges if they ever visit Vermont.

The Brattleboro Select Board voted 3 to 2 on Friday to put the item on the ballot for the March vote.

The board made that decision because they received petitions from townspeople with the required number of signatures.

Select Board member Richard Garant says he thinks the vote is legal, but the town doesn’t have the authority to issue an arrest warrant. He says it sends a message.

Organizers of the petition drive say the vote is an advisory.
