FISA Amendments Act
I’m disappointed to note that both Harry Mitchell and Gabby Giffords joined the other 103 Democrats who voted for the FISA Amendments Act of 2008. (Ed Pastor and Raúl Grijalva voted against.) The 105 Dems have covered themselves in shame, granting immunity to telecom companies, while basically telling the American public that their privacy is not important and that the Fourth Amendment is just something written on a “goddamned piece of paper“. Every single one of them should be called to the mat by their constituents.
I’m also disappointed at Obama’s statement on the vote.
