Representative Robert Wexler has been trying to gain momentum on a proposal to impeach Dick Cheney. He went to major newspapers – such as the New York Times, Washington Post and Miami Herald – to gain some exposure but was turned down. Undaunted, he turned to the Internet.
WexlerWantsHearings.com was launched yesterday and its main focus is to impeach Dick Cheney. In the opening of the site it reads:
“Following the release of an online op-ed advocating for Cheney impeachment hearings by Representatives Robert Wexler (D-FL), Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) and Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), all Members of the House Judiciary Committee, Wexler has launched an ambitious online effort to mobilize support for immediate impeachment hearings for Vice President Dick Cheney.”
I think people are learning from Ron Paul that there is much to be gained from the Internet!
I have joined the Wexler website and added my name as one who would love to see Cheney impeached. However, I do not see any place that gives any indication of how many have signed on, like a running counter. I know that people like to have the thrill of watching how many are putting their name to Cheney’s ticker… I’ll keep looking.
