Dear Sen. Webb

I worked hard for you in 2006.

I signed a petition to draft you to run for US Senate. I gathered signatures to place your name on the Democratic primary ballot in 2006. I hung signs along the roadways near the Shad Planking in 2006.

I donated money and time because I believed in your leadership and judgment.

You are a hero.

I never deluded myself into thinking you would vote my way on any given issue. I trusted that you would vote your conscience at every turn.

But I believed that your moral values were in line with mine; on war, peace, economic fairness, and civil liberties.

That said, I am baffled, angry, dismayed, and, frankly, betrayed by your vote on telecom immunity.

I give you the benefit of the doubt, but not without an explanation.

Why did you vote to give telephone corporations an ex post facto whitewash of their criminal collusion with an oppressive government to violate the 4th amendment?

Please submit your answer in any form you see fit.

Though, I would not advise calling me at the telephone number I cited. It is a Verizon cell phone, and may very well be tapped!
