Two groups called the Velvet Revolution and Voters for Peace have taken action to have twelve Bush administration officials disbarred, or lose the ability to legally practice law, for “providing legal cover for the war crime of torture.” That quote is from Kevin Zeese, a board member of both organizations, and a Green Party Senate candidate in 2006. He ran in Maryland and got 1.5 percent of the vote. Zeese was actually nominated by the Greens, Libertarians, and Populists in that state, but the law changed during his campaign so that he could only accept one party’s nomination. He was also active in other Green campaigns, and was Ralph Nader’s spokesman in 2004.
Multiple attorney generals and Bush administration officials, like John Yoo and David Addington, are being targeted for their justification of techniques ranging from waterboarding to sleep deprivation. The website for the coalition of groups seeking to disbar the attorneys is here.
