Pressure Al Franken To Oppose the FISA Amendments Act

It has been almost two weeks now since the U.S. House of Representatives passed the FISA Amendments Act. It is less than one week until the Senate votes on the proposed law. The FISA Amendments Act is one of the most important issues of the day, and a congressional candidate’s position on the FISA Amendments Act shows voters clearly what kind of representative that candidate would be.

So, why has Al Franken, who is running as the Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate in Minnesota, not issued a statement explaining his position on the FISA Amendments Act?

Al Franken has had plenty of time to read the FISA Amendments Act. He has had lots of time to think about what the bill means. Yet, Franken has not said one single thing in the public record to inform voters in Minnesota about whether he would vote for the FISA Amendments Act if he were in the Senate. I’ve searched newspapers. I’ve searched blogs. I’ve searched Al Franken’s own campaign web site. There’s nothing but silence from Franken on the FISA Amendments Act.

Minnesota voters deserve to know where Franken stands. Would Franken defend the Bill of Rights, or would he join those spineless Democrats who have caved in to George W. Bush and vote for the FISA Amendments Act?

Call Al Franken’s senate campaign at 888-908-2008 and demand an answer.

  1. Is there anybody else who has not gone on record? I had no idea that Al Fraken was responsible for H.R. 6304. I am going to have to go back and read the news accounts more closely.

  2. We ALL are responsible for what we do on the FISA Amendments Act, and EVERY Democratic candidate for Congress ought to come out against this.

    I know that there are many Democratic candidates for Congress who have not yet gone on record. In the congressional district representing Buffalo, New York, for instance, there are four Democratic candidates who will face off against each other in the primary, and NOT ONE has taken a position.

    It’s time to force these fearful Democrats to get off the fence.

  3. Hi! I was surfing and found your blog post… nice! I love your blog. šŸ™‚ Cheers! Sandra. R.
