At a town meeting on Tuesday, the Newfane (VT) community voted "yea" to the following resolution:

""Whereas George W. Bush has:
"1. Misled the nation about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction;
"2. Misled the nation about ties between Iraq and Al Quaeda;
"3. Used these falsehoods to lead our nation into war unsupported by international law;
"4. Not told the truth about American policy with respect to the use of torture; and
"5. Has directed the government to engage in domestic spying, in direct contravention of U.S. law.
"Therefore, the voters of the town of Newfane ask that our representative to the U.S. House of Representatives file articles of impeachment to remove him from office."

The vote was  121 to 29.  Other Vermont towns joined, with similar results.
