“CFL Chair Calls for Lieberman to Resign over Remarks”And WTNH-TV online has picked up on the story:
The Connecticut for Lieberman Party Chair, Dr. John Orman, called on Senator Joseph Lieberman to resign from the U.S. Senate for his irresponsible remarks that called for the U.S. to unilaterally bomb Iran. Orman said, “He has crossed the line. He no longer represents the CFL and he no longer represents the views of the citizens of Connecticut. His unilateral war mongering could lead to a new World War III.” Orman asked that Lieberman immediately resign his seat and that Governor Rell appoint Ms. Susan Henshaw, the Secretary of the Connecticut for Lieberman Party to Lieberman’s seat. Orman said the Governor should appoint someone from the party that elected Lieberman, the CFL and Henshaw would become the first female U.S. Senator from Connecticut. Orman said, “Remember, as Senator Lieberman likes to say, no one in Connecticut wants to start World War III more than Joe Lieberman.”

(WTNH) _ The Connecticut for Lieberman Party is calling on Senator Joseph Lieberman to resign from the U.S. Senate following his remarks made Sunday on CBS' Face the Nation regarding military action against Iran.
Lieberman said on the national television program that, "we've got to be prepared to take aggressive military action against the Iranians."
