Feingold May Filibuster FISA Expansion/Telecom Immunity

Posted by libhom Wednesday, June 25, 2008

Hat Tip to Marc Crispin Miller's blog Notes from the Underground.

From Democracy Now! 6/24/08:

AMY GOODMAN: Senator Feingold, will you filibuster this bill?

SEN. RUSS FEINGOLD: We are going to resist this bill. We are going to make sure that the procedural votes are gone through. In other words, a filibuster is requiring sixty votes to proceed to the bill, sixty votes to get cloture on the legislation. We will also—Senator Dodd and I and others will be taking some time to talk about this on the floor. We’re not just going to let it be rubberstamped.

AMY GOODMAN: Would you filibuster, though?

SEN. RUSS FEINGOLD: That’s what I just described.

However, a subsequent posting on Notes from the Underground reports on a contact with a Feingold staffer.
Just got off the telephone with Senator Feingold's office. He is dead set against the bill. However, I was repeatedly advised that his comments on Democracy Now were misinterpreted. Oh? Thereafter, I was told that the senator is " not yet " committed to undertaking a filibuster. This is horrific.


This underscores the importance of contacting the Obama Campaign and calling Senators demanding a filibuster of this unconstitutional and unAmerican legislation.
