Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States, 2007/11/13 - Dr. Marion D. Thorpe, Jr., Congressional Candidate for Florida's 23rd District, notes Representative Dennis Kucinich's resolution for Impeachment and questions the authenticity of his CD 23 opponent's Impeachment and Congressional election in 1992.
Dr. Marion D. Thorpe, Jr., Congressional Candidate for District 23 in Florida, has taken a closer look at Article I section III of the U.S. Constitution following Presidential hopeful Dennis Kucinich's House resolution to begin Impeachment proceedings last week. Upon personal review of the Impeachment portion of the U.S. Constitution, Dr. Marion D. Thorpe, Jr. concludes the following:
1) Appropriate denial of Kucinich-propagated Impeachment hearings;
2) Further clarification is immediately required to determine the electoral validity of Dr. Thorpe's 2008 Congressional opponent. It should be noted that Dr. Thorpe's opponent was first elected to Congress in 1992 after being Impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives (413 in favor of Impeachment and 3 against impeachment), and after an appeal of the U.S. Senate majority conviction was granted by Judge Stanley Sporkin based on the fact that the initial Senate trial did not occur before the entire U.S. Senate body.
"As I see it, the U.S. Constitution is a concrete guide for America's well-being. It seems to me that either personal interpretations of the U.S. Constitution were at play or somebody simply dropped the ball on this matter by not having a follow-up trial before the full U.S. Senate body," states Dr. Marion D. Thorpe, Jr. With the understanding that this matter did not run its proper legal course, Dr. Thorpe is now concerned that a breach of the U.S. Constitution may have occurred with the 1992 election of his opponent to Congress. "Section one Article three of the U.S. Constitution states that 'Judgment in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of Honor, Trust or Profit under the United States." Dr. Thorpe continues by stating, "My opponent's 16-year tenure as a U.S. Congressman appears to go against the Constitution's specific directive of 'disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of Honor, Trust, or Profit under the United States' following Impeachment."
It is Dr. Marion D. Thorpe, Jr.'s firmest hope that this matter can be resolved in a timely manner; thus, putting to rest any and all confusion relating to the Congressional tenure of Dr. Thorpe's 2008 opponent for the Congressional District 23 race. "If everything is in order, my inquiry will result in a tremendous favor for my opponent. Categorically, if it turns out that he is free and clear of alleged past misdeeds, I will lead the charge in asking the public to no longer associate my opponent's name with Impeachment terminology. Furthermore, if it turns out that the Republican-led Senate graciously made it possible for my opponent to hold Congressional office, then my opponent will have learned of yet another accomplishment afforded to him by Republicans," states Dr. Marion D. Thorpe, Jr.
Dr. Thorpe lays no claim on being a legal scholar; thus, he welcomes legal input and opinion on this matter for the purpose of protecting the integrity of our U.S. Constitution, and for the purpose of making certain that all men are created equal and governed accordingly by the reigning law of the land.
Dr. Marion D. Thorpe, Jr. is a Congressional Candidate for Florida's 23rd District. Categorically, Dr. Marion D. Thorpe, Jr. is the right man at the right time as people yearn for positive change in Florida's 23rd Congressional District. Dr. Thorpe's candidacy is anchored by the basic tenets of compassion, respect, and honesty. Dr. Thorpe encourages you to support his P.E.A.C.E. platform. The election of Dr. Marion D. Thorpe, Jr. to Congress will signal "A New Day, A New Way!" for the people of Congressional District 23 (FL)
