Jay Rockefeller. Sellout.
Dear Senator Rockefeller-
It is dismay that I write to you regarding your decision to support granting immunity to Telecomm Companies from lawsuits filed against them by American Citizens who’s fourth amendment rights may have been violated.
I am particularly appalled that you have also accepted significantly larger amounts of contributions this year than pervious years from executives of those same companies you have now decided to assist in granting immunity.
It’s too bad Senators don’t have a Code of Conduct such as the one for U.S. Judges:
Model Code of Judicial Conduct Canon 2
A Judge shall avoid impropriety and the appearance of impropriety in all of the Judges Activities.
It is my understanding that you made this decision based upon a review of documents provided by the White House about the telecomm companies cooperation.
Why would a United States Senator make a decision based upon information provided to him by the entities who may have engaged in illegal activities? This is a classic example of the Fox guarding the henhouse. And you’re getting all your information from the Fox. The reason to have these lawsuits go forward is so that no one can selectively pick the least incriminating information and present it as the entire story.
This administration has engaged in illegal activity and you’re helping them to cover it up.
I’m ashamed of you Senator Rockefeller. You were elected to uphold the Constitution.
In case you forgot here’s what it says:
4th Amendment to U.S. Constitution
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
I don’t think that’s very ambiguous.
Hugs and Kisses,
