Congratulations to Gov. Bill Richardson. He's taking a strong stance against immunity for the multi-million dollar Telecoms that willingly broke the law.

"There can be no compromise on personal rights and privacy. I urge my Democratic primary opponents, and every Senator, to stand up and state loudly and clearly -- without any equivocation -- that he or she will not pass any bill that grants retroactive immunity to companies that willingly aided the Bush administration in violating the law and spying on our own people. As President, I will follow the Constitution. "
