McCain supports telecom amnesty

Posted by Ryan Blethen

Wanted to post an update to an earlier post about Republican presidential candidate John McCain's position on granting amnesty to telecommunication companies.

I linked to Wired story that quoted a McCain surrogate speaking at a the Computers, Freedom and Privacy conference in Connecticut. The surrogate said that McCain would not support amnesty for telecoms that had helped the government with domestic spying.
McCain's campaign folks sent a note to Wired explaining that the Arizona Senator has supported amnesty and still supports amnesty.

Too bad.
