Warrantless wiretapping bill today Call House of Rep.Submitted by Shishio on Fri, 06/20/2008 - 09:41
Got this in my email today. Thought we ought to support this by calling our Representatives and telling them to vote NO.
I Just happen to be in Steny Hoyers district.... His secretary took my phone call but didn't really seem interested in passing on the message, though she said she would.
From Democrats.com or something like that. -
"Now I must ask you to pick up your phone again and call your Representative right now to demand a NO vote on warrantless wiretapping. The vote will be Friday around noon, but please call no matter what time you get this. (The Congressional switchboard is open 24x7x365 and each office has voicemail.)
Steny Hoyer's warrantless wiretapping bill is obscene because it gives complete immunity to the telcos that have spied on us illegally since 2001, as well as the Bush Administration officials who illegally asked them to break the law. And it lets them continue spying on us by creating Big Brother with a figleaf of meaningless "protections."
On May 14, Democrats defeated a similar immunity bill 213-197. There is absolutely no reason for any Democrat to change his or her vote now except corrupt greed for telco campaign cash.
So call the Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121 and ask for your House Representative (not Senators) by name, or find your House Representative's name and direct dial by entering your address on the right side:
