If I Were In The Connecticut State Legislature....

Tuesday, June 12, 2007
I would introduce a recall law. You see, Joe Lieberman has been acting in a pretty outrageous fashion - between voting for Alberto Gonzalez and saying we should invade Iran - I think he needs therapy, not a seat in the U.S. Senate. At present there is no provision in Connecticut state law for removing a sitting officeholder. According to Wikipedia, the Democrats have a 2/3 majority in both houses of the General Assembly, so they theoretically have the power to override a veto by Republican Governor Jodi Rell. And of course the moment the law passed I'd work to get petitions to remove Lieberman from office. Let him explain to the voters why he broke every one of his campaign promises of 2006.

I know this isn't going to happen, but we can dream, can't we?
