Porn Valley a Key to Impeachment Proceedings Against the Vice President

In an article posted on the Impeach for Peace blog, during a meeting with Impeach for Peace supporters, Representative Keith Ellison is quoted as saying, "Impeachment should be on the table" and when asked about the possibility of impeachment actually occuring, Ellison immediately replied "yes, it can work". This is good news, as Congressman Dennis Kucinich is expected to file Articles of Impeachment against the Vice President this coming Wednesday. We will impeach Cheney first!

According to the article, Ellison also identitified Representative Howard L. Berman, from California's 28th Congressional District, the area described most often on the internet as "Porn Valley", to be a key Judiciary Comittee member who needs persuasion from his constituents that impeachment of the Vice President is both appropriate and necessary.

Congressman Berman's website describes California's 28th District as follows:

California's 28th Congressional District spreads from the northern San Fernando Valley, where it takes in the small city of San Fernando and includes the communities of Pacoima, Arleta, Panorama City, Van Nuys, and North Hollywood.

The southernmost border follows in part the famed Mulholland Drive, taking in Encino, Sherman Oaks, Studio City and the Hollywood Hills at the east end of the Santa Monica Mountains in the San Fernando Valley. Berman represented much of this area for a decade in the California Assembly in the '70s and in Congress in the '80s.

Once composed of predominately white, suburban Los Angeles communities, the district has undergone a dramatic shift in ethnic makeup with an influx of increasing numbers of Hispanic residents. Hispanics are, in fact, the predominant ethnic group of the 28th district with a population comprising 55.65%.

The district reliably supports Democratic presidential candidates. In 2000, Gore captured the 28th with 72% of the vote.

A thriving business district lies along Ventura Boulevard, which runs through the southern stretch of the district with trendy restaurants and a skyline of office towers housing corporate headquarters. It passes by the Sherman Oaks Galleria, home of the Valley Girl, a cultural icon popularized by the song and 1983 movie, and continues on to Studio City, named by Mack Sennet, the man behind the wacky Keystone Cops. A number of popular TV shows have been filmed at the Studio Center, including "Hill Street Blues," "Roseanne" and "Seinfeld."

The collapse of the defense industry and the 1994 Northridge earthquake created great challenges for this area. It has seen remarkable economic recovery, however, fueled by advances in technology, a thriving entertainment industry and the growth of service industries increasingly driven by new immigrants.
Major Industries

Service, entertainment, health care, technology-based manufacturing.


While the Congressman mentions that his district is where the filming of Seinfeld took place, I think it is a shame that he fails to mention that the district is also the likely shooting location of the Page Morgan vehicle 'ReBelle Rousers' (but I am digressing). I might find this a very good excuse to go and visit Page Morgan (this site needs some work, maybe some capital investors?) and pass out pro-impeachment handbills on the streets of North Hollywood and Van Nuys. I'll take some more pictures of Page, maybe even with a Kucinich or Peace First! t-shirt on : )

In any case, Porn Valley has a chance to to turn the tables against the administration, which had targetted the industry for politically motivated investigations (AG Gonzalez's attempts at achieving deliverables for the GOP's right-wing anti-sex and anti-First Amendment evangelical voting block) which led to the US Attorney's scandal.
