Both Barak Obama and Chris Dodd will Filibuster Immunity Legislation
It’s official: Obama will back a filibuster of any Senate FISA legislation containing telecom immunity, his campaign has just told Election Central. The Obama campaign has just sent over the following statement from spokesman Bill Burton:
“To be clear: Barack will support a filibuster of any bill that includes retroactive immunity for telecommunications companies.”
It would be really awesome to see all the Democratic leadership show some courage on this issue.
This really should be a bipartisan issue. The Fourth Amendment is one of the crucial freedoms that separates America from the rest of the world.
