    I'd have to do some reading on the topic and specific changes that occurred then.

    •  I've got the same question - was it appropriate (1+ / 0-)

      for Congress to give retroactive immunity to corporations (and federal officers) who willfully and knowingly committed crimes in direct violation of the existing FISA law?  What is the remedy for the millions of Americans whose constitutional rights were violated as a result of illegal wiretapping?  Related, what's your view on the use of state's secrets claims in court cases - should this ever be used to hide government misconduct?

      My other question is regarding your support for equal treatment under the law, specifically marriage equality.  What's your view on DOMA, given that it adversely impacts married gay Iowans who might move to other states (and also impacts their rights under federal law)?

      Good luck in your effort - you're up against a true wingnut and ideologue.  Even though it's a conservative state (I live in WI, but worked in IA for a few years), Iowans have a long tradition of fairness and common sense to which I hope you can appeal.

    •  no disrespect intended but why the political... (0+ / 0-)

      ...response?

      certainly you know about the civil liberties abuses from the bush administration and effectively continued under the obama administration.

      warrantless wiretapping?  ringing a bell?

      let me be blunt:  please do tell how you wouldn't be just another bought and paid for DC hack trying to get re-elected every 2 years using corporate money?

      and daily kos will be in your rear-view mirror and we'll never hear from you again.

      we've seen it a dozen times since the inception of this website.  how will you be different?

      why should democratic voters not punish democratic politicians this fall for behaving like repub lite?
