ABORT S.O.P.A./P.I.P.A. - BRAVO Wikipedia!

UPDATE I  Jim Himes' office reports that Cong Himes (CT -4) opposes S.O.P.A. as drafted.

UPDATE II Scott Greenfield who writes Simple Justice has an excellent piece up critical of SOPA/PIPA for all the right reasons.  See it here

The top 1/10 of the top 1% represented in part by Corruptocrat former U.S. Sen. Christopher Dodd (D-CT) and now chief propagandist for the Hollyweird Eliti's Motion Picture Association are pushing fast and furious to impose draconian rules over the internet.

Dodd's successor, Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) is a co-sponsor of P.I.P.A., the Senate's version of this awful bill. In 2010, Blumenthal corraled $154,066 in campaign contributions from the entertainment industry (TV/Movies/Music). Blumenthal's D.C. phone number is (202) 224-2823, his Hartford office number is (860) 258-6940. Call his office and politely voice your opposition to PIPA and ask his staffer to request that he withdraw as a co-Sponsor and vote against PIPA.

Here is a website you can visit to identify your congressional representatives, determine their position on SOPA/PIPA and get their contact info.

Wikipedia has shut down its English language service for 24 hours in protest against S.O.P.A.
