The Huffington Post is reporting that in their meeting today, Reid told Lieberman that he had to step down from his position as chair of the Homeland Security Committee if he remained in the Democratic Caucus. Lieberman did not accept this offer, which means that his only redress is to go around Reid and petition the Senate Democratic Steering and Outreach Committee to keep his seat.
We’ve watched for years as Joe called war opponents traitors, lied about wanting to bring the troops home to get elected, stabbed Democrats in the back and did everything he could to keep Barack Obama out of the White House. Lieberman laundered smears that even McCain wasn’t willing to launch himself.
Make no mistake about it — Lieberman was openly threatening the Democratic Caucus in his press conference today.
Enough is enough.
Please sign the petition to the Steering and Outreach Committee, telling them it’s time for Joe to go.
RELATED: Bachmann Censure Overdrive
What an incredible night for America! I am so filled with joy. I’m sure you are just excited as I am and looking forward to the Obama era. So many of you sent me messages yesterday about going to the polls to vote, as well as the hard work you put into this election. I am proud to know you. Unfortunately, the news is not all good — Michele Bachmann won her race for reelection, and will be doing everything she can to stand in the way of progress.
But our fight is not over. Rep. Bachmann still deserves to be censured for her outrageous comments about President-Elect Obama (that feels good to write!), and as soon as Congress is back in session we will deliver the petition to House leaders. So let’s make sure as many people as possible have signed it. If you haven’t before, send the petition on to your friends and family and urge them to sign on as well. Tell them to go to:
And sign up today!
Thank you for everything you’re doing,
Censure Bachmann Campaign
