To "We the People,"
Which person's privacy has been violated: President Barack Obama, President Bill Clinton, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, Vice President Al Gore, Governor Bill Richardson, former Obama transition Co-Chair John Podesta, or the late Laurance Rockefeller?
In what way was this person(s) privacy violated?
What information are you referring to?
Comment: please understand I hold no personal animosity toward any of these public figures. However, I fully intend to put as much pressure on We the People as possible to convince you to post this petition to the website and allow the American people to demonstrate their support.
In that regard I apologize in advance for any unseemly correspondence you might receive from any citizen angry about your decision to censor this petition. I cannot control how people express this anger.
