Senator Lindsey Graham has been out in front of the NSA scandal, defending the agency’s spying on American emails with the old “if you’re not doing anything wrong you have nothing to worry about” defense. “I don’t think you’re talking to the terrorists. I know you’re not. I know I’m not,” Senator Graham told a host on Fox & Friends last week. “So we don’t have anything to worry about.”
The folks at FreedomWorks are calling Senator Graham’s bluff. They want his email password.
Kibbe commented, “Privacy is a citizen’s right to choose what information you prefer to tell the public about, and what you choose to keep to yourself. Senator Lindsay Graham recently asserted that violating the Fourth Amendment to implement warrantless government surveillance is not only acceptable, it’s welcomed. If we’re not talking to terrorists, we have nothing to worry about.”
“Respectfully, Senator, we ask you to lead by example and make your email account password available to the American people. If you have nothing to hide, then you have nothing to worry about. Right?”
If Senator Graham isn’t doing anything wrong, what does he have to worry about?
