I imagine Senator Dodd is feeling pretty great now. It’s rare that politics provides an opportunity for one man to stand up and fight for a just cause, and win. Senator Dodd was able to filibuster retroactive immunity for the phone companies.
Despite retroactive immunity appearing to be a violation of the ex post facto clause in Article I of our Constitution most of the Senate was ready to pass it. Thanks to Senator Dodd’s leadership on this we’ve won one battle in the war to preserve our nation’s Constitution.
