Hi :)

Sensenbrenner is autocratically ruling the House Judiciary committee as observed on Friday, June 10, ‘05 when he unilaterally closed the Democrat’s hearings on Patriot Act. This is the committee where articles of impeachment must be generated and approved against Bush/Cheney. This committee has 6 more Republicans than Democrats. Given these factors and Sensenbrenner’s willingness to violate the rules of procedure, it will take a lot of public pressure to get any type of open and fair hearing on the Downing St. Memo and it’s supporting documents. Consequently everyone needs write their federal representatives about Rep. Sensenbrenner reprehensible conduct and request that he be removed from any position of authority.

Here is a copy of a letter to consider:

"wish to express my outrage at the misconduct of Rep. Sensenbrenner and ask that you resolutely support your Democratic colleagues in this matter. Sensenbrenner's abuse of authority substantiates the radical conservative agenda to trod upon our constitutional rights and freedoms.

From his egregious misconduct on Friday, June 10, ‘05, it is abundantly clear that Sensenbrenner abused his authority and that he must be removed. Sensenbrenner prevented all testimony that took an opposing view of the Patriot Act’s most oppressive laws. Sensenbrenner illegally violated House rules by unilaterally terminating Democratic hearings that were previously authorized. Sensenbrenner clearly violated freedom of speech, the House Rules on hearings and exemplified the oppressive and radical conservative agenda via his onerous abuse of power. Sensenbrenner resorted to a Machiavellian political maneuver and operated in an anti American manner. He should be severely admonished and removed from office.

I urge you to vote against any resolution to extend the Patriot Act’s most intrusive laws now under consideration in the House."
