From TPM today:
The Senate overwhelmingly approved a new federal wiretapping law this afternoon by a vote of 69-28.
After last month’s approval of a similar measure in the House, today’s vote essentially clears the way for the bill to go to the White House for a final signature. … Sen Barack Obama (D-IL) voted for the bill.
From TPM in 2007, a quote from Obama’s campaign:
“To be clear: Barack will support a filibuster of any bill that includes retroactive immunity for telecommunications companies.”
