Randolph, Vt. Leaders of the Vermont Democratic Party voted Saturday in Randolph to urge Congress to begin impeachment proceedings against President Bush.
The vote makes Vermont's Democratic Party committee the fifth to do so, following New Mexico, Nevada, North Carolina and Wisconsin, party officials in Vermont said.
Committee member Margaret Lucenti said the president had misled the country into war, conducted illegal electronic spying on Americans and violated international torture treaties.
The committee decided against a proposal to urge impeachment of Vice President Dick Cheney.
