August 6, 2007 -- Bush signs bill permitting warrantless eavesdropping of digital communications

With the support of 16 Democrats in the Senate and 41 in the House, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) was amended to permit warrantless eavesdropping on digital communications passing through the United States.

The FISA Modernization Bill could not have been signed into law by President Bush without the active support of Vichy Democrats, who bolted their leadership, including the Chairmen of the Senate and House Intelligence Committees -- Jay Rockefeller and Sylvestre Reyes, respectively -- and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, to embrace Bush's grab at increased surveillance powers.

The 41 Vichy Democrats in the House who voted against the Bill of Rights are:

Robert "Bud" Cramer - AL-5 (former Madison County District Attorney)

Vic Snyder - AR-2 (former state senator)

Mike Ross - AR-4 (former state senator)

John Salazar CO-3 (former state rperesentative)

Allen Boyd - FL-2 (former state representative)

Daniel Lipinski - IL-3 (former college professor)

Melissa Bean - IL-8 (former consultancy director)

Ben Chandler - KY-6 (former Kentucky Attorney General)

Charles Melancon - LA-3 (former industry lobbyist)

Collin Peterson - MN-7 (former accountant)

Gene Taylor - MS-4 (former state senator)

Earl Pomeroy - ND-AL (former State Insurance Commissioner)
