HC & M, The Coalition for HJR 125 contacts Speaker Madigan
Today I faxed the following letter to Michael J. Madigan, Speaker of the Illinois House of Representatives.
The Coalition for HJR 125
Dear Speaker Madigan,
The Coalition for HJR 125 has formed to promote and pass HJR 125, Rep. Karen Yarbrough’s resolution calling for the impeachment of President George W. Bush based on Jefferson’s Manual of the House of Representatives.
The Coalition for HJR 125 sees our duty as citizens to stop the illegal and immoral
Bush administration, before it starts a nuclear war on Iran for domestic political advantage.
As speaker of the Illinois House, you have a role to play in the complex system of checks and balance that our Founding Fathers left to us. President Bush’s egregious misconduct and the abdication of oversight by this Congress must be addressed.
Speaker Madigan, in the next week the Coalition for HJR 125 would like two things to happen:
1) The Rules Committee to assign HJR125 to a substantive committee; and
2) The House leadership to commit to holding hearings on the resolution
Hearings in Illinois on this resolution will serve a purpose in and of themselves, airing the many illegal acts of this administration, and reminding citizens and legislators across the country of both the powers that are available to them to stop this madness, and their duty to do so.
Speaker Madigan, please allow HJR125 to advance in the General Assembly.
Spokesperson, The Coalition for HJR 125
