Ralliers Call for Obama Impeachment
More than two dozen people rallied at an overpass in Springfield this afternoon.The overpass on West Lake Shore Drive over I-55/I-72 was lined with signs, banners, and people waving American flags.
The groups claims to be garnering support for their mission: Impeach Obama.
The protestors are part of a bigger movement called Overpasses for Obama's Impeachment.
Protestors believe the president has taken their freedom.
"That's not America," Debbie McQueen, a supporter of the movement, said. "That's not our America. He's trying to take our America away, he's trying to take our rights away. He needs to be out of office."
State and city of Springfield police officers showed up around 3 p.m. to ask the protestors to take down their signs that were attached to the railings of the overpass, citing a rule from IDOT.
