WOW...! Dodd places a hold on the FISA bill...!!!

this just arrived in my email...

damn...! DAMN...!! i am impressed...!!!

[Name Redacted],

It's been a busy day, but I wanted take a moment and let you know that I have decided to place a "hold" on legislation in the Senate that includes amnesty for telecommunications companies that enabled the President's assault on the Constitution by providing personal information on their customers without judicial authorization.

I said that I would do everything I could to stop this bill from passing, and I have.

It's about delivering results -- and as I've said before, the FIRST thing I will do after being sworn into office is restore the Constitution.

But we shouldn't have to wait until then to prevent the further erosion of our country's most treasured document.

That's why I am stopping this bill today.

I've gotta run, but please visit my campaign website for more details.


this is a long overdue confrontation... dodd's going to take mountains of shit for this, but, by god, let the chips fall where they may... it's about goddam time someone took a forceful stand...
