Obama to re-sign Patriot Act Republicans unite against autopen

In the last month, we reported that an autopen, not President Obama, signed the Patriot Act extension into law.Some questioned the legality of using a machine instead of getting the president himself to sign a law, but the White House argued it was legit.

However, that explanation wasn't good enough for some Republicans in congress.21 House Republicans sent a letter to the president expressing their disdain for the mass-signature facsimile machine. The missive calls for Obama to re-sign the Patriot Act in person On Friday .

It is clear that assigning a surrogate the responsibility of signing bills passed by Congress is a debatable issue, and could be challenged in court," the lawmakers wrote. That being the case our request is that, out of an abundance of caution and you affix your signature to S. 990 by personally re-signing the enrolled bill.
