Senate to Vote on Restoration of Habeas Corpus this Friday

“The privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in cases of rebellion or invasion, the public safety may require it.”
-The United States Constitution

I know I am on a bit of a petition tear this morning but what can I say.

Patrick Leahy, along with our very own Pennsylvania fossil Arlen Specter have cosponsored the Habeas Corpus Restoration Act (S. 185). The vote is likely to occur by the end of the week and at present there are 24 additional cosponsors. Urge your Senator get his/her head back on straight and restore the fundamental basis of our rule of law by supporting the Habeas Restoration Act.
