Barbara Mikulski, a Democratic senator from Maryland, has announced that she is actually going to vote for the FISA Amendments Act. Mikulski will vote to help George W. Bush cover up an illegal spy operation to look at the personal, private communications of millions of Americans. Mikulski will vote to make the fourth amendment in the Bill of Rights operationally dead. Mikulski will vote to wreck the system of checks and balances that keeps America from descending into tyranny.
Senator Barbara Mikulski needs to know that this vote will not be forgotten. There are Democrats organizing right now to oppose Mikulski’s re-election to the Senate in 2010.
Senators who sell out Democratic voters for the sake of George W. Bush have no place in public office.
