Dear Senator Nelson,
I am writing to urge you to support the Restoring the Constitution act of 2007. Your vote of support for the Military Commissions Act of 2006 was, in my opinion, the low point of your senatorial career. You can work to undue the harm that was caused by this act, by voting now to support the reinstatement of habeas corpus and by declaring that we are a land of free people, not a police state.
As stated in a previous email to this office, I do not in anyway, ever, support torture. Working to make that the official stance of the United States government, is incredibly important to me. From what I understand of the Restoring The Constitution Act of 2007, it would bring us back to the sound principles of treating everyone fairly and without torture, and force us to comply with our foreign obligations under the Geneva Convention.
I have read that nearly 400 men continue to be held indefinitely and without charge at Guantanamo Bay, and that a good many of them are provably innocent. Please allow due process to help these individuals see some form of justice.
Thank you very much for your consideration on this issue.
