Protestors demand Obama's impeachment on Tri-State overpasses

(FOX19) - Members of a national movement called Overpasses for Obama's Impeachment were out in full force Tuesday demanding that President Obama be ousted.

Members of the group held signs that read 'Impeach Obama' on several Tri-State overpasses in Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties.

"Something is not going right," said Vonda Pickens, a member of Overpasses for Obama's Impeachment - Kentucky. "We have the NSA, IRS. It's almost been a year and we don't know what happened in Benghazi. Every day you turn around and there is another scam or something coming out."

According to the group's national website, they have one goal: "The removal of the corrupt and criminal President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama."

The website goes on to read, "Our only peaceful recourse is to take to the streets and overpasses of America and DEMAND that our nation be returned to We the People..."

On the flip side, President of the Hamilton County Democratic Party Tim Burke says the group's message is ridiculous.

"There are some people who will never respect the fact that President Obama has now been elected twice," said Burke. "There is absolutely no basis, and you don't hear any legitimate political leaders talking about impeachment of the President because there is no basis, because it's silly."

To actually be impeached, the Constitution states, "The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors."

No American President has ever been forced from office due to impeachment.

However, Overpasses for Obama's Impeachment say there are future protests in the works.
