SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - Two-thirds of the U.S. Senate would have to validate a U.S. House vote to impeach the president, a very unlikely scenario with the Democrats in control of the Senate.
But that reality didn't dissuade the South Dakota Republican Party from passing a resolution at its state convention Saturday calling for the impeachment of President Obama, according to The Sioux Falls Argus Leader.
"Therefore, be it resolved that the South Dakota Republican Party calls on our U.S. Representatives to initiate impeachment proceedings against the president of the United States," the resolution reads.
The resolution accused Obama of violating "his oath of office in numerous ways," and mentions the recent trade of five Taliban members for captive U.S. soldier Bowe Bergdahl, among other issues.
Delegates voted 191-176 in favor of the resolution.
