“Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison released the following statement after voting against the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) (H.R.624):
“The threat of cyber-attack is real. As we have seen repeatedly, both public and private networks are under constant threat, and Congress has a responsibility to address these threats.
“However, CISPA in its current form would violate Americans’ fundamental right to privacy. I join the White House and Members of the House Intelligence Committee in opposing the legislation.”
