Our national office recently alerted us to the fact that Arlen Specter – you know, the one who walks around threatening the funding of the NSA unless more information comes out about illegal spying, who repeatedly asks “where’s the outrage?” about the secret spying – will be introducing a really, really bad bill on the NSA as soon as next Thursday. It would retroactively authorize the president and NSA’s actions, expand the executive branch’s powers and make judicial checks to protect innocent Americans optional.
But we’re not taking this lying down. We’re organizing an emergency press conference/demonstration next Tuesday at 12:30pm outside the Federal Building in Philadelphia (where Specter’s Philly office is) on the 6th street side. Bob Barr, the former congressman, will be a featured speaker.
It’s really important that we get as many people as possible to attend. We want to show Specter that the outrage is right HERE!
