Senators That Voted To Allow Immunity for the Telecom Industry With FISA

There will always be another election.  When that comes, keep your state senator in mind.  Did your senator vote to protect your privacy?  Do they uphold our liberties?

Today in the senate, the FISA debate was wrapped up and the vote was held.  Hillary Clinton did not show up to vote.  California Senator Dianne Feinstein voted to allow telecom immunity and spying on Americans.  Too bad, Feinstein isn’t up for re-election until 2012.  However, we have good memories around here.

Want to know how your state senator voted?

From Senate.gov, here is a summary and the voting record of each senator according to their state:
