Did Obama violate the Privacy Act of 1974?


According to 5 U.S.C. § 552a, United States agencies, including the Executive Office of the President shall, “maintain no record describing how any individual exercises rights guaranteed by the First Amendment unless expressly authorized by statute or by the individual about whom the record is maintained or unless pertinent to and within the scope of an authorized law enforcement activity.”

Perhaps one of our lawyer friends might want to weigh in on this. Did the White House actions in yesterday’s solicitation of “fishy” information about the health care bill constitute a violation of the Privacy Act?

  1. Not a lawyer, but on the surface, they seem to be violating the law, but since when has the left let that stop them?

    If they are busted in some way, they’ll just lie and say that they’re looking at the content of the message, not the messenger. We all know what that really means.

  2. I’m with Matt. They’re busting laws left and right but nobody is arresting them.

  3. Obama is above thew law. Hell he is above everything. Can’t do any wrong. Just looking out for our best interest. Self sacrificing, you know he really doesn’t want to be in the public eye. Just doing all of us a favor. How dare you ask a question like that. This will be reported to the white house. Ok I’ll stop now. My blood pressure just went trough the roof.

  4. It appears under the Act that you have a right to both view with one other person each document that is about you, to get a copy of it, and to apply to correct it. I believe you would also be able to get WH responses to the sishy snitches. This can be enforced in Federal Court in the juridiction in which you reside. If that information was released to the campaign without your consent, it is a misdeanor. I encourage all citizens who have spoken out against health care to make a request. First, complain to the email listed at the WH so there is at least one record of you. If 20-40 million people have complained, that many people can make the request. By leeting the WH know you disapprove of their attempt to infringe on your 1st Amendment rights, maybe they will begin to treat the public with respect and properly consider our opinions.
