In probably her final legislative act in Congress, outgoing Georgia Representative Cynthia McKinney has introduced a bill to impeach President George W. Bush.

The legislation from the Democratic congresswoman has no chance of passage and serves as a symbolic parting shot not only at Bush but also at Democratic leaders. Incoming House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi has made clear that she will not entertain proposals to sanction Bush and has warned the liberal wing of her party against making political hay of impeachment.

McKinney, who drew national headlines in March when she struck a Capitol police officer, has long insisted that Bush was never elected legitimately. In introducing her legislation in the final hours of the current Congress, she said Bush had violated his oath of office to defend the Constitution and the nation’s laws.
