Arcata City Council calls for Bush impeachment

Thursday, January 5, 2006

(01-05) 23:53 PST Arcata, Calif. (AP) --


This small coastal city is dipping its small toe into national politics once again.


For the second year, the Arcata City Council passed a resolution demanding the impeachment or resignation of President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney, citing violations of international and constitutional law.


The resolution passed Wednesday with a split vote, 3-2.


The resolution lists allegedly impeachable offenses, such as misleading the American people and Congress into waging war in Iraq, failing to respond adequately to the Hurricane Katrina disaster, torturing human beings in violation of the Geneva Convention and ordering the secret surveillance of American citizens.


All elected officials are sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution, said Councilman Dave Meserve, co-sponsor of the resolution. "This obligates us to act when the president violates the Constitution," he said.


White House spokesman Ken Lisaius said Bush understands that there are people who oppose his policies, but "recognizes he has a responsibility and the constitutional authority to protect our country and that's what he will continue to do."
