Dodd Still Leading Fight Against Telco Amnesty

Dodd still leading on issues, in this case, against FISA Telecom Amnesty:

Today, starting at around 10 am, the Senate Judiciary Committee will be revising and possibly voting on a new FISA law, as Matt Browner Hamlin previously mentioned. The issues at stake, as I'm sure you know, are twofold. First, Chris Dodd . . . believes that there should be no immunity for lawbreaking telecom companies that spied on American citizens starting before 9/11. . . . Second, the FISA legislation in its current form allows the government to obtain "umbrella warrants," which allow it to spy on a wide net of people. Dodd . . . believes this is unconstitutional . . .

    Dodd should be the leading contender for the Democratic nomination. The fact that he is not makes me about as disgusted with the Dems as I am with the Rethugs
