Cornyn Concerned About Reporting of "Fishy" Speech

In a letter written to President Obama yesterday, Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) expressed his worry that the White House will use its new media outreach program to inappropriately collect personal information on its political opponents.

As you'll recall, yesterday the White House asked supporters to report "fishy" information being circulated about President Obama's health care plan. 

"By requesting citizens send 'fishy' emails to the White House, it is inevitable that the names, email, addresses, IP addresses and private speech of U.S. citizens will be reported to the White House," Cornyn wrote in a letter to Obama. "You should not be surprised that these actions taken by your White House staff raise the specter of a data collection program."

The Hill reports that
Cornyn asked Obama to cease the program immediately, or at the very least explain what the White House would do with information it collects.

"I am not aware of any precedent for a President asking American citizens to report their fellow citizens to the White House for pure speech that is deemed 'fishy' or otherwise inimical to the White House's political interests," Cornyn said.
