Merkley votes against Snowden aid
I have written Merkley to object to this bullying tactic, noting that the senator's vote is out of step with the opinion of the majority of the American public and his Oregon constituents.
I wrote him that Snowden should be seen as a hero, not an enemy, for his brave action in revealing the intrusion of the federal government into our privacy.
I urge you to write Merkley about his vote. Go here to do so: http://www.merkley.senate.gov/contact/
