Longtime Republican political activist Jim Lacy of Dana Point has teamed up again with Floyd Brown, author of the 1988 Willie Horton ad that helped bring down Michael Dukakis. This time they want to try to bring down President Barack Obama. And they’ve got an Impeach Obama Web site to prove it.
James Lacy is also the treasurer for ExposeObama
“Enough is enough. We’re calling for the impeachment of Barack Hussein Obama. And if you agree you can join us right now,’’ begins the message on the site.
Lacy was one of six people candidate Obama listed on his “Behind the Smears” page, during the presidential campaign. These were people who the Obama campaign said played fast and loose with the facts in an attempt to bring down his candidacy. I’ve asked the White House is they have any reaction to Lacy’s latest effort. But the administration tends not to comment on such sites.
Lacy says he’s fully aware that there isn’t any chance now to get Obama impeached. But that doesn’t dissuade him.
“This guy has engaged in activities which have taken away people’s property rights under the first amendment, threatens people’s speech rights and has affected our national security,’’ Lacy said. An election lawyer and former general counsel for the Consumer Products Safety Council, Lacy is a former Dana Point councilman. He says he has the largest slate mail business in the state.
Lacy said he knows there’s no chance under this Democratic Congress that articles of impeachment would be brought against the president, the only way such an action could happen.
“But that doesn’t mean that the reasons don’t exist and there isn’t value in putting the information out,’’ he said. “To the extent that it exposes Obama it helps to undermine his political support.’’
