Members of the LaRouche PAC protested Thursday outside of the St. James Post Office on Lake Avenue, with signs and speeches proclaiming President Barack Obama should be impeached.
The LaRouche PAC is an international campaign pushing for the impeachment of Obama, according to organizer Lynne Speed. Speed said the political action committee is calling for the immediate impeachment of the president for several reasons, mainly because of the murder of the U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens.
"There was adequate notice, 72 hours before hand, to the administration that Ambassador Stevens actually said his life was threatened by Al Queda," Speed said. "Obama did nothing for 72 hours and arguably for several weeks."
Speed also said the organization believes Obama was involved a year ago in going into Libya in an illegal, unconstitutional war.
"To launch a war, which this was, you have to have the authorization of the U.S. Congress, and he violated Article I Section 8 of the Constitution," she said.
Speed was joined in the protest by committee member Margaret Scialdone. Speed said they have no plans to return to the post office to protest, but it is a national campaign and will be seen throughout New York.
