Email from District Director Rose Auman:

As he discussed with you in the January 30th meeting,Rep. Price returned to DC in early February to determine with his colleagues the most effective wayto address his and the nation\'s serious concerns aboutthe President\'s authorization of NSA wiretapping of UScitizens without approval from the FISA Court.

He asked that I e-mail those who left their contactinformation to let you know that he and several otherDemocrats in the House will be sending a letter to theAdministration requesting the appointment of a specialcounsel to investigate the charges that thewiretapping program was in violation of the law andthe Constitution.

He will be in the Chapel Hill office on Tuesdayafternoon, February 21, and could meet with you totalk more about this if you\'d like: 3:15-4:00 p.m.would be good. Just let me know. Thanks.
