Presidents Day Protest Going Well
Lobbyist, Tom Lehman told me this morning that today is the only day the legislature will be meeting this week. The legislators will be attending meetings around the state on Thursday, taking the pulse of the citizenry on budget issues.
I met Coleen Rowley while protesting this morning. She was walking around the Capitol with David Strand who is trying to find a legislator to carry a bill repealing the state's version of the unnecessary, unconstitutional and oppressive, so called "Patriot Act." She was very nice. I told her I never thought an FBI agent would be my hero, but she certainly is after blowing the whistle on pre-911 misdealings by the agency.
-More after the House protest.
