Vermont towns approve Bush "indictment"

Vermont towns approve Bush "indictment"

Go To Original

They weren't running, but President Bush and Dick Cheney were on the ballots in two Vermont towns.

Voters there approved measures calling for the indictment of Bush and Cheney. Both are accused of violating the Constitution.

The measures carry no legal weight and are more symbolic than anything. They call on police to arrest Bush and Cheney if they ever visit Brattleboro or nearby Marlboro.

In Brattleboro, the vote was 2,012 to 1,795. In Marlboro, which held a town meeting on the issue, it was 43-25 with three abstentions.

Voters interviewed after casting ballots in Brattleboro said they saw the article as an opportunity to express their frustration over the war in Iraq and Bush's tenure in general.

The White House press office isn't commenting, but the Republican National Committee denounced the indictment effort.
