Democrat Takes Denny Hastert's Old Seat

A scientist, Bill Foster, running against some business shill republican has won Denny the Hutt's old seat in the Illinois 14th and he is clearly another vote against voting for Bush Immunity in the FISA act.

The President and his allies in Congress are playing politics with national security, and that's wrong. Nobody is above the law and telecom companies who engaged in illegal surveillance should be held accountable, not given retroactive immunity. I flatly oppose giving these companies an out for cooperating with Alberto Gonzalez on short-circuiting the FISA courts and the rule of law. -- Jim Bill Foster
