1) Sign up.
2) Send this to at least 2 friends and ask that they reciprocate.
3) Write to your congressman/woman and demand that they support Wexler's call to investigative hearings on Dick Cheney.
Sample letter follows:
Dear Congressman _________,
I write to you today as a concerned citizen of ___(your state)___, where I feel the time for investigative hearings into Dick Cheney is NOW!
The charges against Vice President Cheney relate to his deceptive actions leading up to the Iraq war (which sadly, has resulted in countless of casualties), the revelation of the identity of a covert agent for political retaliation (which jeopardizes and undermines the security of our nation and CIA), and the illegal wiretapping of American citizens (causing civil unrest concerning the abusive handling of power by the US government).
I am concerned that congress is too comfortable with the idea that the Bush administration will be out of office in a year, and fail to act on issues that are far to important to the American Public. An investigation will put the evidence on the table, and the evidence - not politics - should determine the outcome.
For an Administration that has consistently skirted the constitution and asserted that it is above the law, it is imperative for Congress to make clear that we do not accept this dangerous precedent.
As a "representative" you do just that: represent your constituents. Now, please do that, represent what my family, those who have signed this letter (also your constituents) and the hundred of thousands of other people who have signed up at http://www.wexlerwantshearings.com/.
