A resolution calling for the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Cheney triggered a passionate debate at at least one Town Meeting today.
About 120 people turned out in Calais, packing the 140-year-old Town Hall to take care of town business. But none of the 25 articles on the agenda drew the heat that the impeachment resolution did.
Marion Gray, whose stepson was killed in Iraq, told the crowd it was “treasonous” to even consider a measure calling for impeachment. She says that if the U-S doesn’t finish the job in Iraq, it will be fighting the same enemy on American shores.
Supporters said Bush and Cheney misled the nation about the threat posed by Iraq and said it’s citizens’ duty under the Constitution to demand accountability.
