More crap legislation from the Democrats

Linda Sanchez (D-CA) has proposed a bill so outrageously unconstitutional that it's hard to believe even a Democrat conceived it. Worse, there are 14 co-sponsors, including one Republican.
Proposed congressional legislation would demand up to two years in prison for those whose electronic speech is meant to “coerce, intimidate, harass, or cause substantial emotional distress to a person.”

Instead of prison, perhaps we should say gulag.

The proposal by Rep. Linda Sanchez, D-Los Angeles, would never pass First Amendment muster, unless the U.S. Constitution was altered without us knowing. So Sanchez, and the 14 other lawmakers who signed on to the proposal, are grandstanding to show the public they care about children and are opposed to cyberbullying.
Presumably it's OK to coerce, intimidate and harass while shouting from a rooftop.

Here's a link to the bill.
