Newfane, VT

A sleepy little southern Vermont township of 1,680 residents just off of Interstate 91, about 20 miles north of the Massachusetts state line considers today whether or not to ask their Congressional representative, Bernie Sanders (I-VT), to file Articles of Impeachment against George W. Bush.

ARTICLE 29: We the voters of Newfane would like Town Meeting, March 2006, to consider the following resolution:
Whereas George W. Bush has:
1. Misled the nation about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction;
2. Misled the nation about ties between Iraq and Al Quaeda;
3. Used these falsehoods to lead our nation into war unsupported by international law;
4. Not told the truth about American policy with respect to the use of torture; and
5. Has directed the government to engage in domestic spying, in direct contravention of U.S. law.
Therefore, the voters of the town of Newfane ask that our representative to the U.S. House of Representatives file articles of impeachment to remove him from

EXCLUSIVE UPDATE (3/7/06 2:38pm): I just got off the phone with the Newfane Town Offices and was told that the voting on Article 29 is complete and that the township voted overwhelmingly in favor of having Rep. Sanders file Articles of Impeachment. The votes were cast as follows:

29 NO
