Only 12 Senators voted against extending the USA-PATRIOT Act

Here are their names (source):

  1. Max Baucus (D-MT)
  2. Mark Begich (D-AK)
  3. Sherrod Brown (D-OH)
  4. Tom Harkin (D-IA)
  5. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ)
  6. Mike Lee (R-UT)
  7. Jeff Merkley (D-OR)
  8. Patty Murray (D-WA)
  9. Rand Paul (R-KY)
  10. Bernie Sanders (I-VT)
  11. Jon Tester (D-MT)
  12. Tom Udall (D-NM)

If you see your Senator listed here, maybe it’d be a good idea to contact them and let them know that you appreciate their support for civil liberties. And it’d probably be even better to contact the ones you don’t see listed here to let them know that they lost your support.

    Well it’s a step up. When it passed the first time, the vote was 98-1.
    That (1) being Russ Feingold, who lost in 2010.

    Seriously US Senate, fuck you. Fuck you all good and hard. Especially a certain super-liberal funny-man who won in ’08 and isn’t on this list. Shame on you all.
