Bring back the "No More Tulias" bill

Thank God for email. I've been woefully remiss in reading my blogroll for the last couple of weeks, so I may have missed this post at Grits for Breakfast, if Scott hadn't dropped me a line. He reminds us that John Conyers co-sponsored a "No More Tulias" bill with Houston Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee last year that died in the GOP run Congress. It would have required corroboration for undercover testimony (read that as busts based on paid snitches) in drug stings using federal grant money.

Now that the Democratic Party is back in control, the time would seem ripe to ask Conyers to bring it forward in the next session.
