Early this morning, the Massachusetts Senate voted 22 to 14 to kill amendment 87 that would have expanded our wiretapping laws dramatically. Thankfully, a related amendment (#24) was withdrawn.
Against pressure from the Governor, the AG, all the DAs' offices, and the police unions, we, the ACLU of Massachusetts, Restore the Fourth Massachusetts and other lovers of privacy defeated the most serious threat to our privacy in years.
Thanks to everyone who called and emailed their State Senator...
