ImpeachPAC Endorses Jeeni Criscenzo
For Immediate Release: March 8, 2006
ImpeachPAC Endorses Jeeni Criscenzo
Today ImpeachPAC endorsed its third pro-impeachment candidate for Congress, Jeeni Criscenzo, who is running unopposed in the Democratic primary to challenge Republican incumbent and former car thief Darrell Issa to represent California's 49th District.
Criscenzo has already been endorsed by the San Diego Imperial Counties Labor Council, Progressive Democrats of San Diego, Democracy for America Meetup #23 (San Diego), and Progressive Democrats of America (national).
Criscenzo has been a leading opponent of the Iraq War since before the invasion. She organized the Bring Their Buddies Home vigils as a non-confrontational way of showing people the human cost of war.
Her campaign website makes clear her opposition to criminal policies of the Bush regime.
She wrote a blog entry on March 6, advocating impeachment of Bush and Cheney. Criscenzo has also been campaigning lately wearing an "Impeach Bush" T-shirt.
In her blog, Criscenzo wrote: "If we go back to George Washington, American presidents have attached signing statements to laws a total of 322 times up until this president. George W. Bush has done it 435 times….George W. Bush is a dictator in president's clothing. He and his cabal have raped our Constitution, depleted our treasury, sent our kids to go kill and torture other people's kids for the personal enrichment of his cronies and left the poor people of New Orleans to die or become permanently displaced, conveniently remaking that diverse Democratic city, at one of the centers of the U.S. petrochemical industry, into a white, Republican stronghold.
"The future of our country is balancing on a precarious precipice. The Bush cabal is moving full-speed ahead in their plans to establish the Global Empire of Halliburton….Our only chance to stop this nightmare is to take back Congress THIS YEAR. That means winning a majority in November AND making impeachment of Bush and Cheney our first priority."

"It's an honor to be able to endorse a candidate as open and honest as Jeeni Criscenzo," said ImpeachPAC Washington Director David Swanson. "Congresswoman Criscenzo will listen to her constituents and speak her mind, entirely regardless of whether what she has to say can be expected to meet the approval of corporate media conglomerates or Beltway pundits. As long as money has to be a part of politics, the best – and the only decent – thing we can do is to give as much of it as possible to candidates who do not worship or obey it, candidates like Jeeni Criscenzo."
ImpeachPAC will give Jeeni Criscenzo the maximum of $5,000: $2,100 now and $2,900 when we qualify as a multi-candidate PAC in April.
ImpeachPAC has already endorsed Tony Trupiano (MI-11) and Chris Owens (NY-11).
