Curt Guyette (Metro Times) reported that John Conyers had a few words with Randy Rhodes after she gave a keynote speech in Detroit---Peace Action's 50th anniversary--and the topic of their chat was: Impeaching Dick Cheney! Go to the 19th minute of the vid...

C&Ler Carol emailed me this article:

After her talk, Rhodes knelt alongside Conyers' chair and they had what looked to be a friendly chat that ended with an embrace. We then collared the always-congenial Conyers and asked him what was going through his mind as he heard Rhodes endorse the call for impeachment and saw the crowd of lefties stand and give that endorsement thunderous applause.

I talked to Curt Gayette today and he thought we have a chance to move the impeachment ball forward....Email and call John Conyers office early and often and ask him to proceed with the bipartisan support of Kucinich's impeach Dick Cheney resolution! Phone: (313) 961-5670 Phone: (202) 225-5126

Bernie Sanders and Russ Feingold have been saying on the radio that they haven't been hearing from the public on Kucinich's proposal so they don't think we want Shooter impeached...If they get calls all week we may get some movement on this...Go here to find your Rep's info...

Can you help us out?
