Featured Members of Congress
On May 08, 2008 Mark Kirk was featured on the homepage of OpenCongress:
Mark Kirk (R-IL) has ramped up his push for <a href="http://www.opencongress.org/bill/110-h1120/show">legislation</a> banning access to social-networking sites in schools and libraries with a press conference outlining the "dangers" and sexually-explicit content available to anyone on <em><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_life">Second Life</a></em>. "Sites like <em>Second Life</em> offer no protections to keep kids from virtual "rape rooms," brothels, and drug stores," Kirk said. "If sites like <em>Second Life</em> won't protect kids from obviously inappropriate content, the Congress will."
