Thank – or spank – your Member of Congress on key PATRIOT Act vote

Earlier this month, Republican leaders in the House violated their own rules to ensure a slim defeat for a measure that would have protected your privacy in bookstores and libraries. Your Representative needs to be thanked for voting the right way -- or spanked for voting against this important measure.

The proposed measure addressed the powers granted by the infamous Section 215 of the Patriot Act which allow government agents to demand -- without an ordinary criminal subpoena, search warrant or probable cause -- your personal records from bookstores and libraries.

When it became clear that the amendment would pass, Republican leaders kept the vote open for more than 30 minutes –- twice the allotted time –- so they could persuade 11 members to switch their votes. The amendment then failed on a vote of 210 to 210.

TAKE ACTION! Give your Representative feedback on his or her vote: “thanks” for voting the right way or “spanks” for voting against this important amendment.
