Obviously, Rep. Neil Abramson took a refresher course in constitutional law after filing HR 46 to punish citizens who attempt to persuade their leges.

According the Associated Press story, Abramson has decided to voluntarily defer his proposed House Rule. See story here.

Abramson was upset with one lobbyist and decided to punish him by violating the First Amendment Rights of all of us.

“…[Abramson] said several people have expressed concern about the broadness of his suggested House rule change and possible unintended consequences.” Associated Press, May 22, 2012

Thanks to all who spoke up on this issue.

Had Abramson’s rule been in effect, we would have been unable to express our views on the unconstitutionality of the law without having been hauled before a “Kangaroo Court” made up of Abramson’s colleagues.
