Final form of Resolution
The County Party passed the resolution to support Russ Feingold last night. Actually, there were three resolutions and the final was an amalagamation of the three. Here's the final wording
WHEREAS President George W. Bush has approved domestic wiretaps on American citizens without seeking a legally required court order, and
WHEREAS he has misled the public prior to public disclosure of the National Security Agency surveillance program by indicating that his administration was relying on court orders to wiretap suspected terrorists inside the United States, and
WHEREAS Senator Russ Feingold has introduced a resolution to censure this unlawful action by the President,
BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED that the membership of the Wood County Democratic Party supports the Senate Feingold Resolution, and urges all Wisconsin Democratic elected representatives to do likewise.
I notified Feingold's Middleton, WI office this morning and, needless to say, they were very happy to hear the news.
Also, I received word this morning that Marathon County passed a similar resolution supporting Russ last night, and, word was also received that "Brew-Town County" is about to consider the same resolution. (I thought they passed it but I was corrected on this.)
We have now learned from The Raw Story that a plurality (46%) support Russ's censure resolution while only 44% oppose it. This from a Pew Research Poll. Surprisingly, in the same poll, 42% actually FAVOR IMPEACHMENT! I guess I'm not that radical afterall.
It was great seeing the new faces at the meeting last night.....not to mention the joy of being in the company of old friends also.... :>)
