Istook to hold the President accountable. Constitution vigil in front of Rep. Istook's office/ 101 N. Broadway- between Park and Main. OKLAHOMA CITY, OK- On Wednesday, Feb. 22, residents of Oklahoma City will hold one of over 200 nationwide "Constitution Vigils" to call for a thorough and independent investigation of the president's illegal wiretapping program. Rep. Heather Wilson (R-NM), who chairs the subcommittee that oversees the National Security Agency, was joined by at least six other Republicans in questioning the president's legal authority to use wiretaps. Wilson has called for a full-scale Congressional investigation. "No one is above the law, not even the president," said Will Andrews, MoveOn Political Action member of Oklahoma City. "This is just another attempt by the president to grab absolute power." "The Bush administration is trying to change the subject because they are skating on thin ice. Republicans and Democrats agree, President Bush broke the law. Rep. Istook should defend the Constitution and hold the president accountable." People will gather at over 200 nationwide constitution vigils reading the Bill of Rights and holding signs that say "Bush Broke the Law" and "Stop Illegal Wiretapping." Constitution Vigil details: Who: Constituents of Rep. Istook and MoveOn members in Oklahoma City Where: N. Broadway / between Park and Main (1st Natl Bank Bldg. - east side) When: Wednesday, February 22, 2006, 5:30PM Excellent visuals. Crowd with candles, signs, read the Bill of Rights.
