Conservative group launches robocall campaign to impeach Obama
A conservative group in the US has launched a movement to impeach President Barack Obama, just days after he won a second term in the White House.
The Conservative Majority Fund, the group known primarily for its birther conspiracy spreading, has launched a robocall campaign to gain support for Obama's impeachment.
"Our only recourse now is to move forward with the full impeachment of President Obama. We suspect that Obama is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors and that there may be grounds for impeachment as is laid out in the constitution," the call, emailed to The Huffington Post by Shaun Dakin of StopPoliticalCalls.org, read.
"Further, he may not even be a U.S. citizen because nobody, I mean no one, has seen an actual physical copy of his birth certificate. Impeachment is our only option. And Republicans are already considering Obama investigations. As the nation's most effective conservative group we are launching the official impeach Obama campaign," it added.
According to the report, among the 'misdemeanors' they have cited are the president's proposals to close the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, an idea supported by Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.), and to give 'full amnesty' to undocumented immigrants.
The group is casting a wide net with the calls. People in Washington, Colorado, New Jersey and Virginia have so far reported receiving the call.
