Campaign for Liberty Chairman Ron Paul and President Norman Singleton issued the following statement regarding news that South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham will likely be Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee:
Ron Paul: "Lindsey Graham’s ascension to Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee is good news for the Deep State and bad news for the American people. Senator Graham is one the Senate’s most fanatical defenders of warrantless wiretapping, mass surveillance, indefinite detention, and even torture. His sponsorship of Sheldon Adelson’s legislation to outlaw online gaming is further proof of his hostility to individual liberty and fondness to crony capitalists — at least those who support his pro-war, pro-surveillance agenda."
Norman Singleton: "Campaign for Liberty’s dedicated activists are ready to oppose any attempts by Senator Graham to use his position as Judiciary Committee Chairman to ram through new violations of our constitutional rights — whether by renewing or expanding the PATRIOT Act or other types of mass surveillance and warrantless wiretapping, or legislation banning online gaming to benefit Sheldon Adelson and other crony capitalists."
