Republican sues Bush for illegal surveillance
Scott Tooley, a Republican, and former Congressional aide and law school graduate, educated at renowned Christian universities, has filed suit against the President, Vice President and relevant federal agencies for their illegal surveillance programs.
According to the complaint, the Bush-Cheney Administration initiated numerous illegal and perpetual surveillance methods on Mr. Tooley and his family after he was incorrectly placed on the TSA's "selectee" or watch list.
Mr. Tooley's case is unique because the suit alleges the Bush Administration has used additional illegal surveillance methods on him in addition to the illegal wiretapping. Mr. Tooley is also the first Republican to file suit with regard to the Bush Administration's surveillance programs.
The suit alleges that RFID tags "that monitor their vehicle movements" were placed on his wife's car.
It's interesting that the guy's lawyer is Larry Klayman, former head of Judicial Watch, the group that forced Clinton to turn over documentation he sought to hide. As much as I disagreed with Judicial Watch, I always support efforts to make government more open; it's the only way big government can work effectively. Let's hope Klayman has a good case.
At least someone is trying to do something.
This crap (spying) has been happening for an eternity...but it's still worth a try.
