145. What happen to using Section 603 of Jefferson manual?
Edited on Fri Nov-09-07 08:44 AM by flashl
May 1, 2006-Vermonters deliver impeachment resolutions to Congress

An effort that began in March culminated Monday when three vermont communities delivered a message to House Speaker Dennis Hastert: Start the process to impeach Pres. George Bush.

Six vermont towns passed resolutions on Town Meeting Day calling for Bushs impeachment. On Monday, Ellen Tenney, a bookstore owner from Rockingham, hand delivered petitions to Hastert, an Illinois Republican.

After meeting with Hasterts staff, Tenney delivered copies of the resolutions to Rep. Bernie Sanders, I-VT, and Rep. John Conyers, D-MI, the ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, where an impeachment probe must originate in Congress.

...

Correctly worded impeachment resolutions must be passed from the speaker to the Judiciary Committee. If only one member of the House brings one of these resolutions to the floor, the House must debate it. Thanks to Jefferson we have the power to force this conversation. The time for a constitutional Peoples Revolution is at hand.


I guess the operating words here are "correctly worded impeachment resolution" for a state's resolution to invoke Section 603 of the Jefferson manual.

Others have suggested that since DK's efforts that a resolution should be put forward everyday until Congress acts on an impeachment resolution. If states have the power to bring the impeachment issue before Congress and "halt" all of its business because the people spoke, why isn't using Section 603 seen as a viable option?
