General Information

Related news:

Right now, six states — California, Illinois, Minnesota, New Mexico, Vermont and Washington — have introduced resolutions to impeach Bush-Cheney. New Jersey will be the 7th state to introduce its resolution. Of all the states, New Jersey has the best chance to pass its resolution through the legislature and transmit our “petition to impeach” to the Congress, triggering Jefferson’s Rule 603. This event will bring huge pressure to start impeachment proceedings. New Jersey offers a case in which both houses of its legislature, the General Assembly and the Senate, have Democratic majorities; Governor Corzine’s also a Democrat, and while his signature is not necessary to transmit New Jersey’s resolution to impeach, there’s reason to believe he will be “favorably disposed” to the resolution, and that will help it all happen.
