Jane Harman wins HackWatch award

leave a comment »

Radley Balko, one of Reason’s top hands, has periodic amusing feature at Hit and Run called HackWatch, awarded to politicians who demonstrate an utter lack of principles. His latest in the series noted that U.S. Rep. Jane Harman, D-Calif., was a big fan of warrantless wiretaps but this week thinks wiretaps aren’t so great after all.

“Suddenly, Harman isn’t so fond of NSA’s wiretapping program, or the idea of federal eavesdropping in general, even though the tap on her own phone was legal, and administered after federal officials actually bothered to secure a warrant,”  he observes.
