Sessions & Shelby Do Something Right!

WSFA Channel 12
Alabama's Two U.S. Senators Vote to Reverse Part Of Patriot Act

March 20, 2007 07:26 PM PDT

Alabama's two U.S. Senators, Jeff Sessions and Richard Shelby joined the majority to reverse a provision in the Patriot Act.

This vote concerns the Bush Administration's firing of 8 U.S. Prosecutors.

Shelby and Sessions took the Democrat's side, and voted to end the administration's ability to fill U.S. Attorney vacancies with White House loyalists.

The House has not considered the bill.

While this isn't a vote to repeal the entire Patriot Act it is a small step in the right direction. I do believe this is the first time Sessions and Shelby have done anything that I have approved of. They generally tend to be terrible embarassments to the state of Alabama. Please write them a note and let them know you appreciate their vote on this matter and push them to repeal the whole Patriot Act.

How did that happen? Was Jeff Sessions suddenly clubbed over the head or something?
