More Senators Dropping Off As Co-Sponsors Of PIPA

from the welcome-to-the-club-of-internet-protectors dept

We've already noted that Senator Marco Rubio dropped his co-sponsorship of PIPA, and now John Boozman has done the same, as have Senators Orrin Hatch and Roy Blunt. On the House side, Rep. Ben Quayle has also dropped support. On top of that, plenty of non-sponsors in both the House and the Senate have spoken out today to say they don't support the bills either... Would list them all, but running between meetings in the Senate to see if we might be able to get a few more names on this list... more later.

UPDATE: Just learned that Pennsylvania Congressman Tim Holden is withdrawing his co-sponsorship of SOPA.

UPDATE: And now Senator James Inhofe (thanks johnjac).
