When I was age 25 I attended the annual NAACP Conference and Career Fair where I met with recruiters from several federal law enforcement agencies. I didn’t know much about the Secret Service, but I knew that I wanted to be an investigator. Following the conference I applied to become a special agent
The Kucinich/Wexler impeachment resolution contained 35 articles covering the Iraq war, the Valerie Plame affair, creating a case for war with Iran, capture and treatment of prisoners of war, spying and or wiretapping inside the United States, use of signing statements, failing to Comply with Congressional Subpoenas, the 2004 elections, medicare, Hurricane Katrina, global warming, and 9/11.
The 2003 invasion of Iraq was the most substantial portion of the articles of impeachment introduced by Kucinich and Wexler. 15 of the 35 articles directly relate to alleged misconduct by Bush in seeking authority for the war, and in the conduct of military action itself. Five other articles address allegations partially or tertiarily relating to the war, including the "outing" of Valerie Plame, treatment of prisoners (both in Iraq and from operations in Afghanistan and other countries), and building a case for Iran being a threat based in part on alleging Iranian actions in Iraq.
Ron Paul's spokesman says the congressman never wrote a 1993 direct mailer bearing his signature that warns of a "coming race war." He only signed it, he says. Spokesman Jesse Benton told Talking Points Memo in an email on Friday that Paul "did not write that mail piece and disavows its content." But prior to that Paul's Iowa chair Drew Ivers told them that Paul took "responsibility" for the mailer but did not share the extreme views contained in it (Hey, it's just the free market! Paul's newsletter company was just supplying what his subscribers demanded!) But Benton also disavowed that statement: “Drew Ivers is a great guy and leader, but he was not speaking on behalf of the campaign and is not acquainted enough with the issue to have the facts.” Paul himself hasn't actually come out and said anything about the mailing, which was a pitch for people to subscribe to his newsletters. He walked off a CNN interview asking him about the newsletters themselves earlier this week. As The Atlantic Wire's Elspeth Reeve pointed out earlier in the day, that spotlight shining on Paul's head has begun to cast a bit of heat.
