    White House Move to Collect 'Fishy' Info May Be Illegal, Critics Say
    The White House has been under fire since posting a blog on Tuesday that asks supporters to e-mail any "fishy" information seen on the Web or received electronically.

    The White House strategy of turning supporters into snitches when they see "fishy" information about the health care debate may run afoul of the law, legal experts say.

    "The White House is in bit of a conundrum because of this privacy statute that prohibits the White House from collecting data and storing it on people who disagree with it," Judge Andrew Napolitano, a FOX News analyst, said Friday.

    "There's also a statute that requires the White House to retain all communications that it receives. It can't try to rewrite history by pretending it didn't receive anything," he said.

    Hmm, Sounds like an Impeachment may be in the works.

    With super majorities in both Houses, I doubt it.

    The Obama Administration doesn't seem to be concerned about breaking the law.

    Gibbs has stated that no one could prove how their name is used, so no one could sue.

    Gangster administration first, now openly and defiantly criminal.
