National Press Club September 13, 2008

"We must protect the privacy and civil liberties of all persons under US jurisdiction. We must repeal or radically change the Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, and the FISA legislation. We must reject the notion and practice of torture, eliminations of habeas corpus, secret tribunals, and secret prisons. We must deny immunity for corporations that spy willingly on the people for the benefit of the government. We must reject the unitary presidency, the illegal use of signing statements and excessive use of executive orders."

Over the weekend, the McCain campaign charged that the Obama campaign may have had something to do with the breaches of Joe the Plumber’s privacy records. The Obama campaign responded yesterday, saying “Invasions of privacy should not be tolerated. If these records were accessed inappropriately, it had nothing to do with our campaign and should be investigated fully.” More at Political Punch.

Discussion: E-Deceptive Campaign Practices

Posted April 12, 2014 By admin

There will be a discussion about e-deceptive campaign practices today, Oct. 20, at the EPIC offices at 1718 Connecticut Ave NW, Suite 200 from 2pm to 3pm. Deceptive campaigns are attempts to misdirect targeted voters regarding the voting process for public elections. Election activity that would be considered deceptive could include false statements about polling times, date of the election, voter identification rules, or the eligibility requirements for voters who wish to cast a ballot. Historically, disinformation and misinformation efforts intended to suppress voter participation have been systemic attempts to reduce voter participation among low-income, minority, young, disabled, and elderly voters. In 2008, millions of new voters are engaging the political process through Internet communication, which presents an opportunity to review the technology and the incident of e-deceptive campaign practices. See more information on the Facebook event page.
