Boston Globe: Go See People v. Bush Author Charlotte Dennett at Harvard Book Store

“If we do not hold the people in high places accountable for the crimes that they committed in office, the crimes will be continued in the future,”
—Vermont Attorney Charlotte Dennett

Dennett, author of The People v. Bush: One Lawyer’s Campaign to Bring the President to Justice and the National Grassroots Movement She Encounters Along the Way, will be discussing and signing her book at the Harvard Book Store in Cambridge, Mass., tomorrow, January 20. (This is in addition to the talk she’ll be attending on the 21st with Vincent Bugliosi and fellow Chelsea Green author Naomi Wolf.) If you’re in Boston, it’s the perfect time to join the accountability movement.

From the Boston Globe at boston.com:

When Charlotte Dennett ran for Vermont attorney general in 2008, her intention was to indict then-President George W. Bush for the deaths of Vermont soldiers sent to Iraq. Dennett lost handily, but she hasn’t given up on her quest to charge the former president with murder. Her new book, “The People v. Bush’’ (Chelsea Green), documents her unsuccessful run for office and the small but vocal movement dedicated to bringing Bush to trial.

“The powers that be hoped that this would all go away, and it’s not going away,’’ Dennett said in a recent phone interview.

Dennett was a Progressive Party candidate without a platform in August 2008, when a friend gave her a copy of “The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder’’ by Vincent Bugliosi, a former Los Angeles County prosecutor best known for his work on the Manson Family cases. That book, which outlined how a state attorney general could bring charges against the president once he left office, struck a chord with Dennett.

“I paused and thought, what sitting attorney general is going to take that risk to his or her job?’’ she said, and promptly decided to take up the cause as a central platform plank.
