Don't Let The Senate Rubberstamp ILLEGAL Wiretaps

A message from Charles W. Sanders:


Please join me in defending our Constitutional rights against illegal wiretapping which will be expressly permitted if Dick Cheney and Arlen Specter get their way. What is ironic about Cheney's obsession is that a U.S. District judge in Detroit has already ruled that wiretapping was in fact, illegal.

This fear-mongering pair, if they are not stopped, would use current Senate Bill 2453 to totally absolve their misguided conspirators and themselves of any legal wrongdoing, should they win approval. I was in a Third District assembly which included U.S. Representative John Conyers who expressed his displeasure with wiretapping and other improper incursions by the Bush and Cheney.

Please display your righteous indignation by submitting this action page so we can rally opposition to this blatant over reach on behalf of the Bush administration. If passed, this legislation would usurp any semblance of recourse through the ordinary remedies available through due process. As your representative in Congress I would vote it down. In the meantime we can speak out together against this conniving dosier. Don't allow your fourth Amendment Constitutional rights against illegal search and seizure to be swept away.

My name is Charles W. Sanders and I am running in Ohio's Third Congressional district in a special election on September 15, 2006, to become the Democratic nominee. Your submissions of my action page on the Voting Rights act had a definite impact on the renewal of this historic measure back into law earlier this year.

However, Senator Arlen Specter has worked closely with Vice President Cheney to develop a bill that would cede even more power to the executive branch -- and tries to strip us of our Fourth Amendment right not to be wiretapped without a warrant.

Specter's bill, S. 2453, would give the Administration new authority to obtain blanket "warrants" for its domestic wiretapping program - as well as for any other wiretapping programs it desires. Once it obtains this blanket permission, the Administration would apparently be exempt from the Fourth Amendment's requirement to show a reason for each wiretap and obtain a warrant. (The legislation does not directly address the fact that the wiretapping program was just declared unconstitutional in a U.S. District Court.

S. 2453 would also:

Send all court cases involving warrantless surveillance - including cases currently pending in Federal courts -- to the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of Review, which is completely off-limits to lawyers without the highest security clearances. Allow these cases to be dismissed for "any reason" with no chance for appeal. Remove other protections, enabling the White House to freely conduct data-mining of your private information.

Thank you for speaking out, Charles W. Sanders


We NEED candidates like Charles Sanders to stand up and make an issue of the repeated trangressions of the current administration. Charles needs your help to get his message out for all of us. Please make a contribution now to enable Charles to go to Congress and fight for you on the issues you care about.


How many times have you felt helpless and wished you could influence the votes of representatives in other districts to prevail on a critical vote in Congress, but thought you could not do so effectively because you were not one of their own constituents? How much more would you support Charles if you do live in his district?

Here we have a courageous candidate who will fight for all the issues you care about, if only he is given the chance to make the run. Please donate whatever you can to help Charles get on the radio to recruit and mobilize even more people to speak out so we can have a real impact on these policy decisions now and for the future. What would you give to have a whole legislature of people like Charles Sanders? Won't you give him your support now to make that a reality?

We have been valiantly speaking out with action alerts based on one fundamental premise --- either our representatives in Congress would listen to and heed the voices of their people --- or else we would work to replace them in the next election.

The time for the replacement action is NOW.


If each of us will just contribute what we can, to the most worthy candidates we can find, it will make a real difference in the kind of Congress we will all have to deal with in 2007. Most importantly, strong showings NOW by candidates who DO have a backbone, and WILL stand up and fight, can send a powerful message to the rest that they better start shaping up or we will ship them out too. Make your donation today and it will have cascading positive effects in many other races for months to come.

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this message to everyone else you know.
