Letter to the Editor: No censure would set bad precedent

Tuesday, March 28, 2006

To the editor:

U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold is correct in his bid to censure President Bush for illegal wiretapping. The U.S. Constitution ensures that no one, not even the president, is above the law. If Congress does not support Feingold's bid for censure, it will be setting a precedent for future presidents and government officials to circumvent the law for their own purposes.
