GREGG COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -

An organization is taking to East Texas overpasses to protest the Obama Administration.

Protestors lined the Farm to Market 2087 overpass bridge in Gregg County today. Organizers of the protests, called "Overpasses for Obama's Impeachment" say they are angry over scandals like Benghazi, NSA surveillance, and the current debate over Syria. They say they want people to hold the government accountable.

"Phony scandals as they call them, Benghazi, IRS, NSA we're not happy at all about Syria, and I'm out here doing this for my grandchildren, I have eight of them, and I want them to have an America that I had when I was growing up", said protestor Lee Humphrey.

"The government's getting so far away from the constitution fro what our fore-fathers wanted, what they set up originally", said Kilgore High School student Taylor Strader.

The group's next event will be a nation-wide overpass protest scheduled for the 9-11 anniversary on Wednesday
