Dodd; Telecom Immunity

Like many others, I was pleased when Sen. Chris Dodd announced on Thursday that he would put a hold on the "compromise" FISA legislation extending Bush's power to wiretap without warrants, and granting retroactive immunity to telecom companies for any crimes they may have committed connection with warrantless surveillance.

Today, Dodd stepped up his assault on this horrible piece of legislation. He says now that if his hold doesn't, um... hold... he will take to the floor of the senate and filibuster the bill.

i intend to promote dodd and kucinich as candidates until the primaries are done. both men are worth a look- and we shouldn't just keep focusing on the so-called 'first tier.' and this is why.
