To Congress:

I am strongly opposed to any "compromise" bill that would grant retroactive immunity to telecom companies that helped eavesdrop on Americans without legally-required warrants.

They broke the law. It is a crime. It was a crime when they did it. An ex-post-facto law does not change those facts. Instead they should be prosecuted. Immunity only if they come clean and testify against the Bush administration in an impeachment process.

I ask that you stand strong for the Constitution and the rule of law. When it comes to illegal wiretapping of Americans, there can be no deal making. 

You CANNOT deal away our constitutional rights to privacy ! Your job and your oath of office is to uphold the constitution. Any such deal goes against your very oath and supports and encourages a lawless presidency. American's will know what you do and if you value your seat in Congress you will uphold your oath and vote to protect our right to be free from invasions without a warrant.

That's what the constitution have no right and no authority to pass legislation counter to the constitution.

You do have a responsibility to hold accountable a lawless administration by impeaching Bush and Cheney

Heres is the vote of each Rep. Please vote out of office any in the YEA section for having voted to allow Bush to break the law and violate your rights. ROLL CALL VOTE
