US towns vote to Arrest Bush & Cheney

A small group of impatient voters in the United States are keen to get rid of George Dubya Bush and his offsider... and they don't want to have to wait until the election.

Voters in the Vermont towns of Brattleboro (pop. 12,000) and Marlboro (1,000) voted this week to arrest President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney for "crimes against the Constitution".

Lawmakers in the two towns passed symbolic but non-binding resolutions to impeach Bush and Cheney, and to end the war in Iraq. The measures approved in Brattleboro and Marlboro call for the indictment of Bush and Cheney, and seek to have police arrest them if they ever come to town.

George Dubya has never visited the State of Vermont, which is known for taking liberal positions on national political issues.
