A petition has been started on the White House ” We the People ” webpage calling for charges to be filed against the 47 US Senators who signed a letter sent to the Iranian government, a letter that appears to be an attempt to undermine the Obama administrations efforts toward reaching a nuclear agreement with the Iranian government.

The petition alleges the 47 Senators are in violation of the Logan Act, which prohibits unauthorized persons from communicating with foreign governments regarding US foreign policy.

Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson is one of the signatories, which should come as no surprise. Johnson’s general ignorance about a lot of things is well documented, as evidenced by his ridiculous comments about how sunspots cause climate change and his failed attempt to, basically, sue the Affordable Care Act.

It’s one thing to say stupid things in public, or file frivolous lawsuits. It’s quite another to stick your nose into the middle of a delicate negotiation involving a volatile and potentially dangerous situation. So I think it’s time to teach Our Dumb Senator a lesson.

Sign the petition and then share it via Facebook, email, etc. You and I are expected to abide by the laws of the land. Shouldn’t Ron Johnson be held to the same standard?

    Love to see them all at Federal Super Max.

    We need a new description for Senator Johnson’s latest faux pas; “dumb, dumber, dumbest” seem totally inadequate to define this monumental act of stupidity, a legislative overreach of epic proportion, a possible constitutional illegality. or all three.

    What is especially reprehensible is that the Senate Leader, Mitch McConnell, was also the leader of the “traitors.”

    I was not surprised that the usual crazies, Cruz et al, would participate in such a traitorous action, but McConnell should have suppressed his racism and political extremism in consideration for the high office he holds as the leader of the United State Senate.

    Bad, bad example by Mitch just as his promise was in the past Congress to obstruct President Obama at every turn.

      Not trying to be a smart ass Duane, but I’ll repeat from the other post for this same subject:

      Yep, well you know, like here we go now, as AG Eric Holder steps down to await a presidential pardon from Obombya in 2016, AG (nominee) Loretta Lynch coming off a couple of “hard hitting,” slaps on the wrists to Citigroup and USBC (allowing fines to be written off as tax breaks) will get right on prosecuting some US legislators for us, the same way her predecessor prosecuted Bush and Cheney (et al) for war crimes, uh uh, you betcha there now hey. Can’t wait for the headlines.

      Nobody holding their breath for a Prosser, Ziegler, Roggansack or Gableman recusal from Club for Growth, John Doe case, I’ll wager.

      Yes there may be some usefulness in a state US Senate campaign race, I’ll grant that. Glad to see that you mentioned the r-wing institutional racial bias, which is their main motivator anything Obombya, even though there are so many valid reasons to criticize him or even impeach him. R-D Uni-party hard at work for the overlords.

    My education is not in the legal area, but in a reading of the Logan Act, it seems to me that at least the initiator, Senator Cotton, is in violation of the law and possibly all who signed including RoJo.

    Would it not be ironic and fitting that the current Attorney General bring charges against the “Logan 47” while he’s waiting to retire?

    They should be charged, this national therefore the Van Hollen principle does not apply. (“it may hvae been illegal but not criminal” if Republicans do it.) All the signors are culpable not just the main author. Interfering in peace negotiations is inexcusable even if you disagree with the process.

    Something that should not go immediately off the public radar is the letter from the 47% of US Senators in the employ of the US of Israel. A slightly different focus on its importance:

    And from Code Pink a righteous take on Senator Tom Cotton:
