Democratic Lawmaker Pushing Immunity Is Newly Flush With Telco Cash

Ladies and gentlemen, more news today on one of the comparatively-few Democratic political figures on my "replace" list.  It's neat (albeit sad) to check my list and not need to be adding another name, because there's already plenty of evidence that they're corrupt (and in Rockefeller's case, in an important position where forward progress might otherwise be being made in the opposite direction)...
On Thursday evening, the Rockefeller-led Senate Intelligence Committee is marking up a bill to re-amend the nation's spy laws. While the text of the bill has not yet been released, the bill reportedly includes a way for the telecoms to escape the litigation against them .
