Petition seeks to impeach President Obama
WRITTEN BY :   Eric Pierce

A local group wants you to sign their petition – but it has nothing to do with the fire department.

A Downey resident e-mailed to say that a group was outside the post office on Firestone Boulevard Saturday afternoon trying to solicit signatures to impeach President Obama.

The resident says she called Downey Police but was told the signature gatherers were simply exercising their First Amendment rights.

“I was surprised to find out they did not need a permit of any kind,” the woman wrote (we’re not revealing her name since her e-mail wasn’t a letter to the editor). “Why is that they are able to do this on the premises of a federal government?”

I drove by the post office this morning but didn’t spot anyone. But hey, at least this group is honest about what you’re signing.
