ImpeachPAC Announces New Endorsements

ImpeachPAC Announces New Endorsements

ImpeachPAC, a federal PAC funding pro-impeachment candidates for Congress, has announced additional endorsements, including: James Wright, Democratic nominee in the Eighth District of Texas; Stacey Tallitsch, Democratic nominee in Louisiana's First District; Danny Stover, Democratic nominee in Illinois' 19th; Bill Glass, Democratic and Green nominee in North Carolina's Ninth; Steve Young, Democratic nominee in the 48th District of California; John Laesch, Democratic nominee in Illinois' 14th District; Florice Hoffman, Democratic nominee in the 40th District of California; Dr. Bob Bowman, the Democratic nominee in Florida's 15th; and Sharon Beery, Democratic nominee in California's 22nd.

"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 has previously endorsed four candidates for the House of Representatives and two for the U.S. Senate. ImpeachPAC is contributing at least $1,000 (more in some cases) to each of the new campaigns endorsed, and contributed $5,000 to each of those endorsed earlier. Earlier endorsees included: 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 Owen (NY-11), and Carl Sheeler (RI, Senate).

The full list of endorsements and links to the candidates' websites can be found here:

Each of the candidates endorsed supports immediate impeachment hearings for President Bush and Vice President Che ney. Each of them has expressed this position publicly. Glass spoke at a large impeachment rally on September 30 in Charlotte, N.C. Young called for impeachment at a peace march on March 18th and plans to bring pro-impeachment signs to an upcoming parade for peace in Los Angeles. Wright's website makes impeachment his most prominent concern and offers citizens a form to use to Email Congress and ask for impeachment:

Laesch, who is challenging House Speaker Dennis Hastert in Illinois' 14th District, told Al Franken on his radio show that, once elected, his first act will be to call for an investigation into the lies Bush and Cheney told in launching the war, and then begin impeachment. Here's the clip:

Beery has made impeachment one of the four main issues in her campaign and on her website http://www.sharonbeeryforcongress.com , where her position statement includes this: "When I am elected I will support the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Cheney. If needed I will introduce Articles of Impeachment myself as one of my first duties as a Representative of Congress. I will do everything in my power to make sure Impeachment is not taken off the table." Beery told ImpeachPAC: "I think they should be impeached and then tried for treason and war crimes. And when I say that, people always cheer."

Wright, Tallitsch, and Glass have aired television advertisements produced by the People's Email Network. The ads flash the words "LIE" and "DIE" on the screen while describing the candidate's opponent's support for a war based on lies.
