Feingold's Proposed Censure for President's Lawless Surveillance Deserves Support

Here's an article describing what Feingold has said today, and how the Republicans are trying to brand it "a crazy political move."

Senator Frist tries to tie the president's warrantless wiretaps with protecting Americans, but the Senate has not even tried to find out whom the administration has been spying on, or for what purpose.
