Marjorie Cohn, President of the National Lawyers Guild and Professor at Thomas Jefferson School of Law, and Stephen Rodhe, Constitutional Lawyer and former President of the ACLU of Southern California and the Beverly Hills Bar Association, will discuss the purpose of impeachment, the separation of powers, and the legal definition of impeachable acts.

    Would have been nice to see some Liberal OC folks at this important event. Fortunately Orange Juice blogger (and winner of the Democratic Party’s Volunteer of the Year Award for Orange County) Vern Nelson was an organizer for it, and Art Pedroza came and blogged about it. You may have to go over to the Orange Juice to read about this informative and inspiring event.
