Throughout all the lies and crimes of the Bush administration's reign of terror, there have been few heroes in the Congress and Senate who have championed the cause of truth like Florida Congressman Robert Wexler. He has led the fight for impeachment hearings, and has never backed down from a fight, no matter the odds against him.

Robert Wexler: True Patriot

As a resident of the great state of Texas, I have no dog in the fight when it comes to Congressional elections in Florida. I can only lament that my Congressman is Louis Gohmert, who looks and sounds exactly like Gomer Pyle, only half as smart and twice as arrogant.

Gomer and Gohmert

Gohmert's best moment in his short congressional career came after he stole a poster from the front of a Democratic member's office - who just happened to be former NFL quarterback Heath Shuler. Wonkette reported:

The next day, according to Roll Call, “Shuler, a former NFL quarterback, was spotted towering over a seated Gohmert, wagging a finger in his face during the heated session.” The furious Shuler was yelling at Gohmert for being a “gutless chickenshit thief” and was apparently barely able to keep from stomping the little Republican’s skull.

Gohmert later said, "I know I did not steal anything; but I am still trying to discern if he might be right about my being chicken excrement."

No, really - that's what he said. That's my Congressman. He does not like it when my letters to the editor are printed in our local newspapers.

And being that my state's Senators are also two of the worst in the entire body (John Cornyn and Kay Bailey Hutchison), I am in the position of having to work with the legislators of other states if I want to do anything other than complain. Congressman Wexler is one of the most accessible and hard-working members in the entire Washington circus, and he is one of the few who have refused to resign themselves to the status of "dancing bear."

Following is the e-mail Congressman Wexler sent out yesterday about former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan's new book that reveals much more about the crimes of the Bush cadre:

Last night, significant news broke that directly impacts our push for Impeachment Hearings and a possible Inherent Contempt charge for Bush Administration officials such as Karl Rove:

Former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan has revealed in his upcoming book that:

• Karl Rove, Scooter Libby, and Vice President Cheney lied about their role in revealing the identity of Valerie Plame Wilson – actions easily amounting to obstruction of Justice.

McClellan also admitted that:

• There was a coordinated effort within the Bush Administration to use propaganda to pump up the case for the Iraq war and hide the projected costs of the war from the public.

Scott McClellan must be called to testify under oath before the House Judiciary Committee to tell Congress and the American people everything he knows about this massive effort by the White House to deceive this nation into war.
