"It's still safe to do this in America"

Despite the 20° below windchills forecast for this evening, a group of people are expected to assemble at Minnesota Power Plaza this evening for a public vigil aimed at pressuring Representative Pete Stauber to vote for the impeachment of President Trump. A full House vote on the Articles of Impeachment is scheduled for Wednesday, but Stauber has already gone on record as saying he opposes impeaching the President.

Organizer Soren Sorensen plans a run for Stauber's 8th District Congressional seat next year, but in the meantime, he says the right to peacefully protest - as well as to impeach a president - are enshrined in the Constitution and that's why this action is so important.

"The Constitition," says Sorensen, "is not a sham."
