Patriot act passes in u.s. house

At last, the Patriot Act, the legislation that breaks down the walls of communication between law enforcement agencies in order to protect the nation from international terrorist attacks, has been extended in the House of Representatives. Congressman Mark Kennedy of the 6th District voted "Yea". Further, his campaign for the office of United States Senator points out,

Democrat Senate candidate Amy Klobuchar has refused to say how she would vote on the Patriot Act. While Klobuchar has remained silent, her four Democrat supporters in the Minnesota House delegation all voted to oppose the extension of the Patriot Act. "Since Ms. Klobuchar has been unable to show one area of disagreement with her party, it is very troubling that every Democrat from Minnesota voted against extending this common sense security measure," added Kennedy. "This is exactly the type of mindless partisanship that has no place in the U.S. Senate."

And while we're talking about Mr. Kennedy's campaign for the Senate, be sure to visit the spot in his website concerning this Saturday's Saint Patrick's Party. You can phone in your intent to attend and they'll accept your contribution and put you on the list.
Hope to see you there!
