Burt Cohen on Civil Rights


Repeal portions of the Patriot Act

In the first of a series of radio ads, Sen. Burt Cohen said, "The right to privacy is a basic freedom, celebrated in our state's motto Live Free or Die. It's the reason we must repeal the unconstitutional portions of the Patriot Act." There is bi-partisan criticism of the Act because of its potential to legitimize infringements by government on individuals' rights as they are guaranteed in the Amendments to the US Constitution.
