On her personal blog, Lucas wrote that as she tried to give her remarks in defense of "constitutional property rights," she was "dragged out of House chambers."

“Allow me to point out that if Delegates genuinely think that my talking about who their campaign donors are ― and how much they’re receiving from corporate lobbyists/corporate PACs ― is an ad hominem attack … then they should be refusing those donations," she wrote.

She also wrote that lawmakers should refuse any donation that, "if someone mentions it, makes you feel personally attacked."

“Because that’s not an attack. That’s guilt. And you SHOULD be feeling that. Let that guilt about who you’re really working for inform your votes; don’t let the corporate money do it.”

I give a few random donations to candidates like this, but then realistically how useful is my $25 go for Iron Stache vs $1.5 million Paul Ryan gets from Koch's and Ricketts.

The Department of Homeland Security wants to compile a database to monitor hundreds of thousands of news outlets and journalists around the world.

Bloomberg Law reports that DHS is looking for a contractor to help build the database and keep track of more than 290,000 news sources, collecting data about each source’s "sentiment," influence, language, and circulation. The data would allow the agency to identify "any and all" coverage related to a particular event, DHS officials told Bloomberg Law.
