Jeff Gannon, and a series of Administration policies to promote Republican policies, and numerous instances of what the General Accounting Office has described as "illegal covert propaganda," it appears that this important Constitutional principle is under siege.

Got an email from Rep. Slaughter today. She's the one who's grabbed this Gannongate thing by the horns along with Rep John Conyers. Well, she's got a petition up and is looking for signatures.
