Berkeley Voters to Weigh Bush Impeachment
Posted on Jun 29, 2006
The City Council of the left-leaning Calif. municipality voted to put the question to citizens on the Nov. 7 ballot. It’s symbolic, of course, because only Congress can impeach.
And although some cities, like San Francisco and Oakland, have passed pro-impeachment resolutions, Berkeley will be the first city to direct ask its voters to decide.
The left-leaning city of Berkeley will let voters decide whether to call for the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney.
The City Council voted Tuesday night to put the advisory measure on the Nov. 7 ballot. The move is symbolic because only Congress has impeachment powers.
Some cities, including San Francisco and Oakland, have passed resolutions calling for impeachment, but supporters say Berkeley would be the first city asking voters to decide.
