Brave New Films To Deliver 43,000-name Petition To Expel Lieberman From Democratic Caucus

Reported by Ellen - July 8, 2008 -

Brave New Films writes: Tomorrow morning, Brave New Films and netroots allies will deliver a petition with over 43,000 names to selected members of the Senate Democratic Steering and Outreach Committee, asking them to strip Senator Joe Lieberman of his rank and committee chairmanship when the 111th Congress takes its seats in 2009.

A new online video from Brave New Films entitled "Lieberman Must Go" documents the numerous slights and betrayals of his colleagues in the Democratic caucus that Senator Lieberman has exhibited, sometimes ostentatiously, over recent years. The video is accompanied by a petition directed at the Senators on the committee responsible for making committee assignments in the Senate. The petition urges committee members to strip Lieberman of his rank and chairmanships in 2009.
