Many have written here of various alleged crimes, felonies and misdemeanours comitted by a whole host of GOP office holders, in official duties and in elections. Many diaries have called upon the Department of Justice and AG Holder to prosecute.

Many citizens are now tkaing advantage of the White House site to launch petitions seeking  whole host of other nutty ideas (and yes, good ones, as in to promote gun control).

Why not use that tactic to get the AG to take action?

File a petition with 25,000 signatures for each and every allegation that has been made ( any can be found on this site) and get 25,000 signatures for each, demanding action. At the 25,000 threshold, the WH will have to respond. Couldn't hurt.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  The first petition (4+ / 0-)

    ... should be to remove AG Holder. We wouldn't need petitions to point out the law to an AG who understood the law.

    •  There you go. A good idea. (2+ / 0-)

      The WH petition forces the WH to respond, rather than only getting the inaction plaguing Holder.

    We don't prosecute people just because the mob demands it.

    •  Public outcry can lead to an inquiry, or at least (3+ / 0-)

      some sort of response. Here we see an outcry leading sometimes to an inquiry or a coroner's inquest, with good results.

      Recently in Quebec (next door), a huge public outcry into purported misdeeds in construction contracts by provincial and municipal politicans and bureaucrats in Quebec led the provincial Liberal government to dither too long, but it finally called an inquiry. Evidence and testimony in the early stage led to the Liberals losing an election to the separatists (mainly for the delays and obfuscation) and three mayors incluing Montreal have resigned. The Montreal Chief of Police stepped up with his own report after the public outcry began and supported the calls for an inquiry. Much damaging evidence and witnesses have already been heard in public sessions. Sometimes this works.

      The above are a small portion of the ongoing coverage in three major newspapers, the national news magazine Maclean's, the two major TV networks. Even the new McGill University Health Care Centre, a multi-billion dollar project, has been swept up in this. It is a huge, mushrooming situation.

      providing evidence, and requesting further, official investigation. in fact, at the federal level, that's how most investigations are begun. but you keep on trying to convince people how entirely "un-american" it would be, to demand investigation of suspected wrongdoing, your corporate masters will be pleased.
  •  The title is confusing. (0+ / 0-)

    Do you mean Republicans should be prosecuted because the are Republicans, or that of those who commit prosecutable offenses, only Republicans should be prosecuted?

    •  Neither extreme (0+ / 0-)

      I merely meant this. In recent months, many dailykos contributors identified wrongdoing by Republicans, ranging from Cheney, Rumsfeld on down to goveronors and party officials. All seemed to feel investigation and prosecution were not being pursued at all. I was only suggesting a  WH petition to ask that those cases be pursued by the Dept of Justice. I was only adressing that slice, using a technique the sorest losers in red states seem to have adopted, to push secession.
