(Maine Democrats) Delegates to debate impeachment

Delegates to debate impeachment


AUGUSTA The Democratic State Convention, which begins today, will include a potentially divisive debate Saturday on the party platform. The reasons: One delegate says he will ask the convention to support the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Cheney; another wants delegates to push for a congressional investigation of administration policies.

Richard Rottkov, chairman of the Democratic City Committee in South Portland, said Thursday that the state convention should follow the lead of the party's committee in his city, which passed an impeachment resolution last month.

Marina Delune, a delegate from Belfast, said she will propose a platform plank calling on the Legislature and the state's congressional delegation to demand a congressional investigation of Bush that could pave the way for impeachment proceedings.

The Democratic committees in Kennebec, Hancock and Waldo counties have backed impeachment resolutions in recent weeks, but it is not clear whether that view is widely shared by Democrats across the state. The proposed party platform now says nothing about impeachment, and the chairman of the Maine Democratic Party, Benjamin Dudley, took no position on the issue during an interview Thursday.

1. Impeachment should be a given, but Democrats need to highlight
what they will do to improve the country and have a feasible plan to do so. They can't win on a get Bush only platform.
