Support Chris Dodd's Filibuster

clipped from www.alternet.org


Sometime today, Chris Dodd will take the floor in the US Senate and begin talking -- a filibuster -- and what he has to say touches on the most important issues facing this country. The immediate topic will be a bill to provide retroactive immunity to telecom companies who violated the law by helping the Bush Administration illegally spy on Americans. But the larger issue is whether Congress will ever hold a lawless executive branch responsible for its criminal behavior.

UPDATE II: URGENT ACTION: Sign A Petition To Tell Harry Reid To Join Dodd’s Filibuster

You can sign the petition to Reid here.

You don't grant "retroactive immunity" when the crime rises to the level of an impeachable offense. And it's disgusting that Harry Reid is even allowing this bill to come to a vote.

For shame, Sir. I signed the petition and I'm sure I'm not alone.
