First here’s what was snapped out of a recent article that hit Drudge today.
The bill in question would mean that I could be compelled to release my user credentials to a prospective employer for my online account. Who here thinks this is either a good or acceptable idea? Anyone? Bueller?
Now I bring this up because just a short while ago we saw the same response regarding a bill that would have violated people’s 4th amendment rights.
One of the bill’s sponsors, State Sen. Adam Kline (D-Seattle), told the Seattle Times that he didn’t properly vet the bill prior to jumping on board. He claims he didn’t realize the bill authorized police searches.
Joe wants people to be held accountable for the laws they push. This includes sponsoring a law. If you cannot be bothered to spend the time reading a bill, you should not be sponsoring it. Even more than that, you should be held accountable for what’s written in it. Ignorance of what is hidden within isn’t an excuse and you should be held accountable no matter what.
