Senate Proposes giving 22 government agencies free access to your e-mail
Senate bill rewrite lets feds read your e-mail without warrants | Politics and Law - CNET News
Virtually no oversight required. Now explain to me why the NLRB or OSHA needs warrantless access to citizens' e-mail, facebook, etc. accounts.
This bill needs to be squashed like a bug.

Response from Leahy.
Bill Intended to Secure Email Privacy Now Does the Exact Opposite (Updated: Leahy Responds) - Hit & Run : Reason.com
Update: Via Twitter, Leahy's office tweets: "Ideas from many sources always circulate b4 a markup 4 disc., but Sen.Leahy does NOT support such an exception for #ECPA search warrants." The feed reiterates Leahy's intent to require search warrants.Ideas from many sources always circulate b4 a markup 4 disc., but Sen.Leahy does NOT support such an exception for #ECPA search warrantsThe whole point of the Leahy reforms is 2 require search warrants 4 govt to access email stored with 3-party service providers under #ECPA

Here's a copy of the bill. It seems to require a warrant (unless I'm missing an amendment which carves out an exemption), but not until three days after the original data was accessed. This is terrible public policy and will hopefully die faster than SOPA.

Will the American citizens have access to the emails from all the Congress and their staffers...
Or, are those protected and privileged communications...
Another wrong turn for our freedom...
And yet, we won't vote these fools out of office...
And replace them with a new set of fools...
It appears hopeless...VISIT MY NEW BLOG!!! http://the-villages-watch.blogspot.com/
