John Kerry Co-Sponsors Feingold’s Censure Measure

Last month in an interview on The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, John Kerry stated that he would support Russ Feingold's censure proposal. Kerry has officially signed on to the bill as a co-sponsor.

Massachusetts Senator John Kerry has officially signed on to the bill. He joins fellow Democrats Tom Harkin from Iowa and Barbara Boxer from California as co-sponsors.

It's unclear whether the Judiciary Committee will ever bring up the censure proposal for a vote.

Kerry initially held off on supporting the measure. He said the president should be held accountable but Kerry wanted to make sure a censure was the best way to do it.

Feingold introduced the resolution in March to censure Bush for authorizing domestic eavesdropping and misleading Americans about its legality.
