Keeping Score: Porkbusters

Porkbusters has a tally of all of the Senators who deny placing the hold in the hopes of ferreting out who is responsible. If you haven't contacted your state's Senators yet, do so! You can find their phone numbers here. It only takes a few moments to do. Even if your Senator is on the record as not placing the hold, call anyway. The more calls they get, the more pressure there is on them to either reveal themselves, or publically repudiate the "holder". Who knows, you may even get someone at your congressman's office to slip and give out some important piece of information.

One thing to remember, though, is to be polite. Politeness is a forgotten virtue (especially in politics). I called Senator Dodd's and Lieberman's offices. Lieberman is a co-sponsor, but Senator Dodd's office refused to deny placing the hold.
