(CNN)- Democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich is transforming his critique of President Obama's actions in Libya into a fundraising plea, asking supporters to decide whether they like President Obama or the Constitution more.
After calling the president's decision to act in Libya an "impeachable offense," Kucinich Monday posted a letter on his website asking supporters for help in "putting together a broad fundraising structure to make sure that I'll have the resources to continue to be a voice in the Unites States Congress."
"The Obama administration's decision to attack Libya was made without any Congressional approval," said the seven-term congressman from Ohio. "It's outside the Constitution of the United States. Whether you like President Obama or not is not the question. The question is: if you like the Constitution more."
"We are bombing Libya right now. Congress did not approve this action, according to the Constitution. Such an action lacks legality in the United States and the President should have to answer to that," he continued.
Kucinich also marked the 8th anniversary of the attack on Iraq with a reminder that he was against the Iraq war from the start. Stating that he "never failed to stand up" when advocating for the "need to more our economy forward" or "internationally standing up for peace," Kucinich asked potential donors to shore up his re-election efforts for 2012.
"I'm asking you to really get engaged in this effort to not just make it possible for me to stay in the United States Congress but to make it possible even more importantly for my voice to continue to be heard on your behalf," he said.
Ohio is set to undergo redistricting following the results of the most recent U.S. Census, a development that may make Kucinich's road to re-election more difficult. The state will lose two congressional seats.
In December 2010 he wrote a letter to supporters declaring, "I will not wait until the Ohio Legislature produces a new map to start thinking of the options. The question will not be: Who is my opponent? The question will be: Where is my district? Seriously."
"We are going to have to prepare for a different kind of election, possibly in a different place because my district may be eliminated. We are going to have to organize in a different way, now. The question will remain: Where?"
