Dear Richard,

We have already reached 100,000 supporters. Thank You.

Now We Need Each of You To Send an Email to Ten More People to Get
250,000 Signed Up at by the End of the Year.

I can guarantee that your 100,000 voices calling for impeachment
hearings will now be heard in Congress. Together, through our new
Quarter Million Person Challenge, let's now set a new goal of 250,000
Americans signing up to demand action.

It has been just 5 days since I called for impeachment hearings for
Vice-President Dick Cheney and already over 100,000 people - including
you - have answered that call by adding your name as an impeachment
supporter at This is a truly remarkable
response that demonstrates the power that average, everyday Americans
can have when we come together to pursue justice and accountability.

Never mind that the national media ignored my call and rejected an
op-ed that I wrote along with my Judiciary Colleagues Rep. Luis
Gutierrez (D-IL) and Tammy Baldwin (D-WI). The Netroots and citizen
activists like yourself are spreading our message and demanding

Quarter Million Person Challenge

Our movement continues to grow by the hour and the day. But, with the
media blackout, I need your help to grow our effort. With 100,000
supporters already signed-up, if each of you e-mail ten of your
friends (a "Chain-ey letter") about

the need for Cheney impeachment hearings we will reach over a million
Americans and perhaps we can reach a new goal of 250,000 signers by
the end of the year!!

Join Me Thursday Night on Blog Radio to Discuss Our Next Steps

On this Thursday at 9:00 p.m. (EST) and 6:00 (PST), please join me as
I appear on live on the Internet to discuss my efforts to convince
Congress to hold impeachment hearing.

More on the Media Blackout

The New York Times, Washington Post, LA Times, USA Today, and Boston
Globe have all rejected our op ed (though the Miami Herald just put an
edited version in its "Letters to the Editor" section). We have heard
from the editors of some of these publications and they are telling us
that they are getting overwhelmed with phone calls and letters of
complaint. (Well done everybody!)

In short - we need to keep the pressure on if this news will spread
far beyond the Netroots community.

With warm regards,

Congressman Robert Wexler
