Become a citizen cosponsor of the Restoring the Constitution Act of 2007
Edited on Tue Feb-13-07 08:49 AM by Mass


HELP SENATOR DODD REPEAL THE BUSH MOCK TRIAL LAWS AND RESTORE HABEAS CORPUS

On Tuesday, February 13th, I plan on re-introducing the Restoring the Constitution Act of 2007. The bill will restore Habeas Corpus protections to detainees, bar information acquired through torture from being introduced as evidence in trials, and limit presidential authority to interpret the meaning and application of the Geneva Conventions. Check back here tomorrow for the full text of the bill and a detailed explanation of what it does.
Become A Citizen Co-Sponsor:

Please take a moment to watch the video about the Restoring the Constitution Act of 2007, sign on as a citizen co-sponsor, and forward the bill to your personal networks. While you and I are acutely aware of the damage President Bush has done to our country's national reputation, too many of our family, friends and neighbors have no idea how far this Administration has gone.

Sign On To Co-Sponsor The Bill Here

And Kudos to Dodd for proposing this bill

6. count me in
great post, Mass.

i would love to see the Democratic Party make Constitutional reform and the restoration of our democracy its core mission. To do that, they are going to need to level with the American people "warts and all".

Dodd's bill is a great start.

k&r ...

26. Ned Lamont sent an e-mail to garner support for this bill-
It read, in part:

Chris was helpful to our campaign during the general election, and he is courageously addressing a range of serious issues in the Senate, including taking the lead in forcing a real change in strategy in Iraq.

This legislation is a chance for the Senate to start asserting our true American values again by unequivocally rejecting the gravely mistaken Administration policies on detainee treatment - policies which have only made us less safe.

Please join Sen. Dodd - along with co-sponsors Sen. Menendez (D-NJ), Sen. Leahy (D-VT), and Sen. Feingold (D-WI) - and consider becoming a citizen co-sponsor of the "Restoring the Constitution Act of 2007":

http://www.chrisdodd.com/habeas

And let your representatives who voted for the Military Commissions Act know that you expect more from them.

Thanks,

Ned
