Jeff Flake's score card is flakey - NRA yes, internet privacy no.


Senator Jeff Flake is proud of his record.  Here is what he had to say in an email to his constituents.

"Sen. Flake's lifetime scores with some of the country's leading government watchdog organizations:"

"Watchdog organizations"?  Oh, Come on.

You know what else?  Try Senate Joint Resolution 34 sponsored by Flake. Text below is from proppublica.org

A joint resolution providing for congressional disapproval under chapter 8 of title 5, United States Code, of the rule submitted by the Federal Communications Commission relating to "Protecting the Privacy of Customers of Broadband and Other Telecommunications Services".

This joint resolution nullifies the rule submitted by the Federal Communications Commission entitled "Protecting the Privacy of Customers of Broadband and Other Telecommunications Services." The rule published on December 2, 2016: (1) applies the customer privacy requirements of the Communications Act of 1934 to broadband Internet access service and other telecommunications services, (2) requires telecommunications carriers to inform customers about rights to opt in or opt out of the use or the sharing of their confidential information, (3) adopts data security and breach notification requirements, (4) prohibits broadband service offerings that are contingent on surrendering privacy rights, and (5) requires disclosures and affirmative consent when a broadband provider offers customers financial incentives in exchange for the provider's right to use a customer's confidential information.

In case you missed it: SJR 34, now U. S. law, nullified your privacy on the internet.  

Remember that Flake has consistently voted with Trump - 538's score is 100% Trump.

Remember in November!  When it comes to nullification, how about we vote to nullify Flake's tenure in the Senate.
