David Barron, while at the Justice Department, wrote legal memos authorizing the killing of US citizens by drone. Now, he has been nominated to a judicial position that is just one step below the Supreme Court. His nomination is up for a vote in the Senate soon, and Senator Rand Paul plans to filibuster. Use the hashtags #NoDroneLawyer and #StandWithRand to tweet at your elected officials to let them know you oppose Barron's judgeship appointment and they should make the drone memos available to the public!
Here are some sample tweets….
