It's not being reported in the corporate media, which also refused to publish an opinion piece penned by six-term Rep. Robert Wexler (D-FL), Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), and Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI).

But the truth is that these three members of the House Judiciary Committee who are calling on Committee Chair John Conyers (D-MI) to start immediate hearings on Rep. Dennis Kucinich's (D-OH) bill, House Res. 799) to impeach Vice President Dick Cheney, have already gotten 36,000 people to sign a petition at WexlerWantsHearings.com calling for action now.

Wexler has said he wants at least 50,000 signatures, and it seems certain he'll have at least that many by the end of today. But why stop there. If everyone at DailyKos were to go to the site and sign on (all it takes is 30 seconds of your time), he'd get closer to 500,000 signatures.

And if each of us were to send out a call to sign to ten of our friends, then we'd have half a million signatures, which would be hard for Conyers and the Democratic leadership, Speaker Nancy Pelosi included, to ignore.

So let's do it!

Go to WexlerWantsHearings.com and sign the petition!

Kucinich's impeachment bill was filed on April 24 and has been ignored now for almost eight shameful months. On Nov. 7, a bipartisan majority of 218 members of the House voted to send it from the floor of the House back to the Judiciary Committee for action. Now it's sat there for over four weeks.

We need to tell Congress, and particularly the Democrats who are stalling on this important defense of the Constitution and of democracy itself that  time's up. We the American People want action! We want impeachment hearings!
