Blue Gal posted Rep. Robert Wexler's video yesterday, asking for citizens to sign the petition on his website in support of impeachment hearings for Vice President, Dick Cheney. Wexler was hoping to get 50,000 signatures and it didn't take long -- it took just 24 hours to meet his goal and the signatures are still rolling in. If you haven't signed the petition yet, you can find it here.

More from OpEd News:

As of Sunday morning, 54,000 people had signed the petition at WexlerWantsHearings.com calling for action now. And names are being added at a rate of one every one or two seconds!

Wexler has said he wanted at least 50,000 signatures. But why stop there? If people get behind this, and if the impeachment movement spreads the word, he could easily get closer to 500,000 signatures over the next few days. Read on...

The more signatures Wexler gets, the more clout they'll have with members of the Judiciary Committee who are on the fence. Let's show Wexler the power of the netroots to get behind and support elected officials who are representing our values and desires.
