List Of Reps To Impeach Cheney Grows To Eleven newsvine furl google yahoo netscape

The list of Democratic sponsors on a bill by Dennis Kucinich seeking to impeach vice president Dick Cheney has grown to eleven with the addition of Rep. Jim McDermott of Washington State.

At the same time McDermott called for Cheney's impeachment, he voted against an appropriations amendment that would have stripped all funding for the vice president's office.

There had been a move underway to cut funding from an appropriations bill for the executive branch for the vice president based on his assertion that the vice president's office is not part of the executive branch. However, enough democrats crossed over to vote with republicans to block the amendment.

While the symbolism of the amendment is a great sound bite, it simply plays into the vice president's ludicrous assertions.
