Missouri congressman Kenny Hulshof joins the state's other House Republicans and has decided to vote to impeach President Clinton. Lee McGuire reports from Columbia.
Just before boarding a plane to Washington, Congressman Hulshof told reporters this morning he would vote for the first three articles of impeachment leveled against President Clinton.
