Fingers: City governments wasting time on your dime next on the Enough Already Daily Brief(ly).
Fingers: This is the Enough Already Daily Brief(ly) I’m Fingers Malloy, she’s Tracy L. Connors. Well Tracy, you know city governments have a lot to worry about, making sure your trash gets picked up on time, cops are out on the streets, a lot of things they could be doing right now, but some of the city governments are diverting their attention to other things, namely Trump’s impeachment. You have the story.
Tracy: I do, this is from Politico Cities Join Call for Impeachment:
Congress may not be ready to launch impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump, but a growing number of cities and towns are trying to push members in that direction.
Brookline, Mass., became the 10th and latest local government Thursday to pass a resolution calling for impeachment, a step designed to add pressure on the state’s congressmen to launch a formal investigation that could ultimately lead to the president’s removal from office.
Fingers: Over what again?
Tracy: They don’t really say.
Fingers: Just we’re a liberal town and we’re ticked off that our gal didn’t win.
Tracy: Yeah, well they’re certain that he’s done something wrong and they just want Congress to investigate all of the things.
Fingers: Now, wouldn’t you be ticked off if you lived in a town like this, or say Los Angeles which I believe is also looking into passing something.
Tracy: Yes, they already passed their resolution.
Fingers: Oh they already passed their resolution. Like there isn’t already enough going on in Los Angeles there are potholes in the city that could be filled Tracy!
Tracy: Yes Fingers but that’s not going to raise money for the Democrat Party.
Fingers: That’s the main thing right there. I believe April was one of the worst months in recent history for fundraising for the DNC.
Tracy: If you say so, I’ll believe you.
Fingers: Trust me on that.
Tracy: This is just going to keep ratcheting up. This tells me that they are too scared to push secession would actually be possible at a state level, not at the city level. Well cities could secede, New York City had wanted to secede at one point during the colonial days (it was actually debated at the outbreak of the Civil War), they were going to secede from the state so they could try that. That might actually have an effect. You could actually pull that off, but there’s no way they’re going to get an impeachment started in the Republican controlled house.
Fingers: And there you have it, that’s today’s Enough Already Daily Brief(ly) I’m Fingers Malloy, she’s Tracy L. Connors.
