  •  Is bugging an elected official wrong? (2+ / 0-)

    Doesn't the public have a need to know what's being said by a highly influential public official?  If not then why is it okay to bug the public (Patriot Act) without warrants?  Mitch seemed pretty okay with doing that.
    I was a bit worried about the Watergate aspect of this event but this diary puts me more at ease.  I would think such a question would necessarily shut him up.
