Russ Feingold.........Lying Shmuck

Statement of Senator Russ Feingold
On the Temporary Extension of the USA PATRIOT Act

February 1, 2006

“I will not block another short extension of the Patriot Act. But make no mistake, I will strongly oppose any long-term reauthorization of the Patriot Act that does not include modest but critical safeguards to ensure that we can both fight terrorism and protect our American values.”

But last night the Senate had a vote on a "short extension of the Patriot Act." The vote was YEAs - 95, NAYs - 1, Not Voting - 4.

Wanna take a guess at who the 1 nay was?...............It was Russ Feingold.

So much for “I will not block another short extension of the Patriot Act."
