President Bush wiretapped American citizens without warrants. He shouldn’t have. It’s totally illegal. As in, he broke the law (nothing new for him, though).
Yesterday, Senator Russ Feingold stuck his neck out and introduced a resolution to censure President Bush. Just like for every other Joe Shmoe, there should be consequences for misleading the public and Congress and willfully and repeatedly breaking the law, no? Censuring the president means Congress officially acknowledges that the president broke the law and condemns him for doing it. Given the scale of the president’s problem, it’s a very reasonable first step to holding him accountable.
MoveOn.org is asking for 250,000 signatures to show broad public support for Senator Feingold’s resolution. So, if you have a 30 seconds and agree with asking Congress to join the call for censure, sign the petition:
