Obama's Secret Order Jeopardizes Free Speech

In response to questions from Rep. Morgan Griffith (R-VA), Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton expressed alarm with the Obama administration’s proposed executive order. The watchdog believes the executive order “would codify corruption into the federal contracting process” and sets a “terrible precedent” that would have a chilling effect upon free speech and set the stage for political retaliation. On Tuesday, the second ranking Democrat in the House, Rep. Steny Hoyer, echoed Judicial Watch’s concerns.
