[liberationtech] SOPA Supporter Considered for Sec. of State

Minor correction.  Hollywood isn’t, and before the recent redistricting wasn’t, in his district.  His district includes, among other places, North Hollywood, but there is little relation between Hollywood and North Hollywood.

Howard Berman has had a long tenure in Congress that is worth a deeper evaluation than solely SOPA/ACTA, spanning legislation such as the Anti-Boycott Act, the infamous Berman Amendment (1988 Omnibus Trade and Competitiveness Act), NAFTA, False Claims Act, et al. Whether or not Berman would actually be an appropriate choice for Secretary of State, evaluating his merits should not be done in as shallow a manner as promoting the business interests of his district, Hollywood -- which is pretty appropriate for an agent model of representation.

Berman was a lead supporter of SOPA. His position as Secretary of State could be a disaster.

I urge you to sign the petition against this nonsense: http://act.demandprogress.org/letter/sos_berman/?akid=1847.98995.P8lsnV <http://act.demandprogress.org/letter/sos_berman/?akid=1847.98995.P8lsnV&rd=1&t=2> &rd=1&t=2
