Two activists infiltrated the Lions Club Town Hall meeting August 14, where the Hon. Sullivan was speaking publicly in Tulsa, after a very long period of insulation from his constituents.
We sat through his propagandistic claims for this industry or that (the ones providing major campaign contributions to Sullivan), and we listened to him make the “business as usual” partisan attacks, and then we were finally given the opportunity to ask him pointed questions on Iraq and the need for impeachment. Ours were the last two questions of the session, before it broke up.
There is only a 2-line mention in Wednesday’s paper, about the impeachment discussion in public with the Representative for OK1:
“Two members of the audience tried to draw Sullivan into discussing possible impeachment of Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney, but the three-term Republican refused to respond.”

The real story;
There was a short question and answer session. After sitting, ignored, with arms outstretched until what looked like approaching the session end, One activist lept to his feet waving frantically and was chosen for a question.

The back-and-forth continued, at the Lions. The other activist replied to Sullivan: “In this late stage of the game, it’s frankly inexcusable that you haven’t devoted any attention to impeachment. You are responsible, as a member of Congress, for providing checks and balances.” He said, walking away: “I’ll look into it.” I said, closing off: “You do that, Sir! I hold you personally responsible for defending the Constitution!”
Sullivan claimed that “There are 500 plus different investigations going on, for
example, by Waxman.” So he’s at least –aware– of the controversies whirling
around this administration,
but he said, “I guess I just haven’t done my
At this point the Lion in charge lost composure and blurted out that “we don’t discuss
politics at the Lions Club.” If it weren’t for the tension that should have drawn a laugh. It seemed we may be about to be asked to leave.
As the meeting ended one activist took off after Sullivan with the other following as backup. . Sullivan did take receipt of a statement of the people’s grievances against the Bush-Cheney administration, namely, the Tulsa Impeachment Committee’s draft resolution for impeachment, as well as take receipt of our business card, advertising the www.impeachOK1.org forum for the discussion of impeachment, in his electoral district, OK1.
