Lewis Libby has revealed the Vice President's complicity in both authorizing and covering up his role in the leak of the identity of a covert CIA officer, one of a number of unconstitutional and illegal acts which Cheney has promoted from a position of undue influence within the Executive branch, others including torture, domestic spying, pre-emptive war, war profiteering, and the doctrine of the 'Unitary Executive,' all of which have contributed to endangering national and international security, undermined the reputation and influence of the United States around the world, and severely damaged our military,</p><p>WHEREAS,<br />These actions have led not only to broad bipartisan opposition to Cheney's policies, as evidenced by numerous statements made in the Congress since its inauguration on Jan. 4, but establish that Dick Cheney's continuation in the Office of the Vice President represents a clear and present danger to the Republic,</p><p>BE IT RESOLVED,<br />That the Democratic Party of the State of California lend its support for bipartisan efforts to remove the Vice President from office as quickly as possible.</p></div></body>
