Today was the day of congressional announcements. It’s funny how things all seem to happen on the same day. First, on the Senate side, it was announced that Feinstein’s democracy-busting S-1487 will be heard in the Senate Rules Committee on July 25. This bill is so dangerous that even many Holt bill supporters are speaking out against it. Also announced today is that Congressman and Presidential Candidate Dennis Kucinich has sent out a “Dear Colleague” letter to ask Speaker Pelosi to stop the advancement of HR-811 so other voices can be heard regarding this legislation.
