Yesterday I posted a bunch of photos and videos of the Nashua (NH) Federated Republican Women’s Club. The Keynote Speaker was Senator and potential VP nominee Kelly Ayotte.
At the end of her speech she spontaneously offered to take questions from the audience. I asked her one on Swatting
“I don’t agree with any effort to silence conservative bloggers or any bloggers.”
That sounds like a pretty straightforward defense of the 1st Amendment to me.
I also interviewed Congressman Charlie Bass after the event and during the interview asked him about the letter to the AG and asked him if he had seen the letter and if he was open to signing it.
“I have not seen that letter I’m certainly open to signing it. I certainly would condemn any law enforcement action of that nature as Senator Ayotte said when addressing that issue I don’t support that kind of effort to infringe upon individuals 1st Amendment rights”
I submit and suggest that every time this issue is brought before a sitting member of congress it brings it closer to the general public, and when the general public becomes informed on these events, things will start happening fast.
Again my message to the Swatter: STATES EVIDENCE NOW! Every day you wait increases the chances your allies will kick you to the curb while covering themselves.
I’m sure we will shortly see Mr. Kimberlin & Co getting Democrats on record about Swatting. After all it is natural to assume a man with the support of groups like Tides and Kerry’s foundation will have the ear of some in congress and if Mr. Kimberlin claims of being a Swatting victim are to be believed we should expect to see Democrats signing on to object to this kind of thing. Shouldn’t we?
