Illegal Domestic Spy Program
It's been a while since I've asked you guys to write your senators (and I know you're all just waiting for my next 'issue'). Here's the deal: On Monday, Democratic Senator Russ Feingold introduced legislation to censure the President for breaking the law by creating a secret domestic spying program. This week Republican Senator Wayne Allard of Colorado, in an interview with Fox News radio, said in response to Feingold's action that he has "time and time again [sided] with the terrorists".

Senator Cornyn,
When Senator Feingold introduced legislation to censure President Bush over the secret domestic spying program, Senator Allard of CO accused Senator Feingold of siding with terrorists.

The ability to debate policy in an open and civilized manner has been a hallmark of American culture. Senator Allard, however, has accused an American senator elected by the people of working with the enemy when Senator Feingold is taking logical and legal action to hold Congress and the President responsible for their decisions.

I urge you to take a stand against this perversion of the American political system and let Senator Allard know that it is not acceptable to question the patriotism and loyalty of a Senator doing that he thinks is best for the American people. I appreciate your time on this issue.
