Upholding his status as one of the most anti-Bush politicians in South Florida, U.S. Rep. Robert Wexler voted in favor of having Congress consider the impeachment of Vice President Dick Cheney.
Wexler, a Delray Beach Democrat, represents a swath of northern Broward.
Here's his statement:
"Vice President Dick Cheney and the Bush Administration have demonstrated a consistent pattern of abusing the law and misleading Congress and the American people. We see the consequences of these actions abroad in Iraq and at home through the violations of our civil liberties."The American people are served well with a legitimate and thorough impeachment inquiry. I urge the Judiciary Committee to schedule impeachment hearings immediately and not let this issue languish as it has over the last six months. Only through hearings can we begin to correct the abuses of Dick Cheney and the Bush Administration; and, if it is determined in these hearings that Vice President Cheney has committed High Crimes and Misdemeanors, he should be impeached and removed from office."
