Senator Jerry Moran Removes Himself As A PROTECT IP Co-Sponsor

from the good-for-him dept

As the march to pass PROTECT IP has continued, Senator Patrick Leahy has been able to bring on board some additional Senators as "sponsors" of the bill. However, at least one may be having second thoughts. SD points us to the news that Senator Jerry Moran of Kansas came on as a sponsor on June 23rd... but then withdrew his sponsorship four days later on the 27th. I have no idea if this was an error or if Senator Moran realized that this bill had serious problems. I have a request in to the Senator's office for more info and will update this post once we know more.

    I know I emailed Moran asking him to oppose the bill, and got an actual non form letter back thanking me for my input and saying he'd heard from a number of his other constituents on the subject of this bill recently too, so it may be a senator actually listening to the voters who elected him.
