PROVIDENCE - At a state house press conference Wednesday, Democratic U.S. Senate candidate and West Greenwich resident Carl Sheeler made a call out to Rhode Island Congressmen James R. Langevin (D-02) and Patrick J. Kennedy (D-01) to assist U.S. Representative John Conyers, Jr. (D-MI) to initiate impeachment hearings for President George W. Bush.

Sheeler, a marine veteran who served during the first Iraq war and an outspoken, 1970's style democrat, declared, "It's time we as ordinary citizens stop talking and start acting to bring the change we want to see in our America."

Sheeler also charged the president with failing to produce Weapons of Mass Destruction, the inability to provide adequate armor for troops, cutting the state's funds for domestic security, and national funding cuts for education and healthcare.

Providing three separate articles of impeachment for Bush, Vice President Richard B. Cheney and Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld for "high crimes and misdemeanors," Sheeler accused Bush of having, "repeatedly lied to our Congress and American, broke our laws and abused this executive authority with impunity..."

Sheeler expressed his frustrations regarding Langevin and Kennedy's lack of action to intitiate impeachment hearings and stated that he was taking matters into his own hands.

Sheeler has secured a billboard located in the area of exit 18 on I-95 that will read, "Be Patriotic, Impeach Bush," set to be erected on Friday.

While there have been roving billboards around the country that extend the same message, Sheeler's will be the first fixed billboard of its kind.

The Democratic candidate also asked his fellow supporters to wear blue on Fridays until the "Impeach Bush" proceedings begin and to also organize peaceful rallies, write, make phone calls and display bumper stickers to get the word out.

When asked if he believed his efforts to impeach the president would prove victorious, Sheeler responded, "It is not a question of whether or not it will be successful; it's about our representatives representing our voice."

Noting that residents of the state are unhappy with Bush's leadership, Sheeler was optimistic that the majority of Rhode Islanders would support his call.

Responding to whether he had spoken in depth to Langevin and Kennedy about the necessity of their support, Sheeler explained that "their accessibility is difficult," but he would continue to pursue the cause regardless.
