The Supreme Court has been wiretapped!

As I've mentioned a couple of times, Illinois's unconstitutional "wiretapping" law criminalizes the act of making an audio recording of a police officer in public. One of the justifications for this law is that it prevents citizens from altering audio recordings of cops to make them look bad.

Yesterday I posted about criticisms of an RNC ad that uses audio from the oral arguments in the challenge to Obamacare to make Donald Verrilli and, by extension, the entire law look bad. It's also easy to imagine unscrupulous people altering the audio to make even the justices look bad.

This cannot stand. I urge Congress to pass a law making it a felony to create these dangerous audio recordings.
