Well, the Democratic leadership of the House is selling out to the telecommunications industry and rolling over for George W. Bush just as the Democrats in the Senate did in March. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer is ramming through a so-called “compromise” FISA bill that will ensure law-breaking telecommunications giants (and big Hoyer campaign supporters) get amnesty for illegally helping the government spy on American citizens. Of course, the only real compromise here is between Hoyer and his ethics. This bill is a total disgrace. If the House passes this bill, it is the last time I will ever support or vote for a Democrat… why bother? Read about this fiasco at Glenn Greenwald’s excellent blog (he’s much better at explaining the legal issues than I would be).
