Live blogging: Terri Schiavo

I called the Florida division of the US Marshall's office to see if they were enforcing the subpoena, got a run around as I was continually transfered to a machine. Called the main line in DC, got some terse guy that said I'd have to call Florida. Called the local office here in Oklahoma, got a much friendlier guy, who said I'd have to call a DC number, which he gave me. Called them to find out that all they were worried about is delivering the subpoena. They claim there are several law enforcement agencies whose job it is to enforce the subpoena, and since they "haven't been asked" they probably aren't enforcing it. They directed me to the Justice Department for who exactly has the responsibility of enforcing a Congressional subpoena. Got lots of quick transfers at the Justice Department then a machine.

Called my local Congressman's office who assured me that he's supporting the bill 100%, but hem-hawed about whether the Congressman is bothering to interrupt his weekend to make sure the subpoena is enforced. I reminded them that a state judge has now declared himself more powerful that the US Congress, and it seems they might want to do something about that. Got the usual routine about introducing/supporting/sponsoring legislation....

...going to make some more calls...
