Sen. Russ Feingold asks your help to find out.

The Republican leader has denied that there is a hold, but is unable or unwilling to identify the Republican Senator or Senators responsible for the objection. Despite the efforts of bloggers and journalists to identify the anonymous Republican objector, he or she has not come forward or contacted either Senator Feinstein or myself to discuss the bill. The fact is that someone anonymously blocked the bill from being passed on Tuesday, that person has made no effort to resolve his or her concerns with us, and the Republican leadership won't even tell us who that person is. That's a "secret hold" in my book!

The Sunlight Foundation has names and numbers. Let's make that Senator stand up and force him to discuss the hold.

Can you help us out?
