Polling data show that the majority of Americans favor the initiation of impeachment proceedings against George Bush, Dick Cheney, and other high administration officials, and no segment of the nation is more lopsidedly pro-impeachment than black America. But the only man who can pull the trigger and initiate impeachment proceedings is Detroit's 40 year congressman and dean of the Congressional Black Caucus, John Conyers. But so far, he won't. Rev. Lennox Yearwood Jr., president of the Hip Hop Caucus, a former Conyers protege, wants the Congressman to rejoin his constituents on the vital issue of impeachment before another Katrina happens, or before the Bush administration launches another illegal war.
