Impeachment Update

There are 22 members of the US House of Representatives who have signed on to support John Conyers' resolution (H. Res 635) to authorize a Select Committee to investigate the grounds for impeaching President Bush.

California's Lois Capps, Maxine Waters, Barbara Lee, Pete Stark, Mike Honda, Sam Farr, and Lynn Woolsey; New Jersey's Donald Payne; New York's Charles Rangel, Jerry Nadler, Carolyn Maloney, Maurice Hinchey, and Major Owens; Texan Sheila Jackson-Lee; Hawaii's Neil Abercrombie; Illinois' Jan Schakowsky; Minnesota's Jim Oberstar; Missouri's William Lacy Clay; Washington's Jim McDermott; Wisconsin's Tammy Baldwin; and Georgia's John Lewis and Cynthia McKinney.

The list was compiled by the investigative journalist, John Nichols, writing for The Nation.  Other than Conyers himself, no one from Michigan has signed on yet.  That includes John Dingell, who is planning to go to his office tomorrow morning and read email from people who live in this area:
