Congressman Maurice Hinchey has agreed to be a
panelist on the Teach-in on Impeachment. The reason
this is such good news is that this will make the
event much more balanced and exciting, since Hinchey
opposes impeachment for tactical reasons and the other
panelists do not. The amended news release below
reflects this change. If you who are receiving this
message are either with the media or have access to
it, please help promote this historic event by using
this new release:
On Saturday, October 13, a Teach-in on Impeachment
will be held 7 to 9 PM at The Forum Theater in
downtown Binghamton . The aim is to educate the
public and legislators on the value of impeachment and
to discuss why this device, enshrined in the U.S.
Constitution, is so urgently needed in our present era
of Congressional weakness and presidential arrogance.

non-profit educational arm of Broome County Peace
Action is sponsoring this event. Attendance is free
