A group seeking to promote the impeachment of President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney is hoping to further their case by appealing to many Congress members' well known sweet tooths.

The Progressive Democrats of America have offered to send 'ImpeachMINTS' to Senators and Representatives in Congress.

"For a 'fresher democracy' order yours today!" the PDA website says.

The group, which helped drive a push in California last month to get the state's Democratic Party to officially endorse impeachment, is seeking donations to send packets of the breath mints to Congressional offices.

With a $10 donation, the Progressive Democrats will send the candies to a donor's Congressional representative. A $15 donation send the mints to both of a donor's senators as well as their Member of Congress.

More information is available at the PDA's website.
