Warning From Sen. Ashcroft
From U.S. Senator John Ashcroft

Dear Online friend:
Following is an excerpt of a speech I gave to the Computer and Communications Industry of America on October 8,1997. Please feel free to pass this along to anyone you think might be interested in this important issue facing our country. We must ensure that people are aware of the Administration's attempt to reduce our freedoms. If you have any questions or comments please do not hesitate to contact my office. I look forward to hearing from you.

Ashcroft Warns of FBI Wanting To Read Your E-Mail
"I am deeply troubled by the Administration's insistence that we should turn over the keys to our individual privacy to federal agents. In recent weeks, we have heard blood-chilling tales of abuse of innocent citizens by the IRS. Only a few months ago, the nation was shocked to learn of snooping in tax returns by IRS employees. Before that, we discovered that the FBI had handed over hundreds of sensitive private files to political operatives in the White House. The outrages against privacy committed by federal law enforcement agencies means one thing: Now, more than ever, we must protect citizens' privacy from the excesses of an arrogant, overly powerful government."
