Vermont Town Set to Vote on Arresting President, Vice President

Residents in Battleboro, Vermont — the only state President George W. Bush hasn’t visited since taking office in 2001 — probably won’t be seeing the nation’s highest elected official anytime soon. And, if they do, it is likely their actions will spark a firestorm throughout the nation.

The community, according to a news report in the Rutland Herald, will vote on paper ballots at a March town meeting on whether Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney should be indicted and arrested for war crimes, perjury or obstruction of justice if they ever step foot in Vermont.

Kurt Daims, the 54-year-old organizer of the petition to bring the issue before the residents of Battleboro, said such ideas are spreading and cited action by activists in Louisville, Kentucky and Montague, Massachusetts as evidence.
