Jan 18, 2012 States opposition to SOPA in its current form
"Internet piracy, domestically and abroad, must be addressed. But HR 3261 (SOPA), as written, runs counter to the fundamental rights we all hold as Americans. It is unwise and unfair. I plan on voting against it as currently drafted, although GOP leadership is now indicating they will not bring it to the floor for a vote."
