"WASHINGTON(AP) -- Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch said
Tuesday he had put one of his staffers on administrative leave for
improperly obtaining data from the secure computer networks of two
Democratic senators."

I wonder why said staffer has not already been arrested under the terms
of the DMCA?  Surely this is a clear case of a DMCA violation?  Surely
no Republicans would bring political pressure to bear to prevent
prosecution, would they?

I never cease to be amazed by the double standards of politics.
