News Roundup: Senate Intel Panel May Defang Leak Bill

August 7, 2012

Good morning, everyone. Let's get right to the headlines:

The Senate Intelligence Committee is weighing whether to remove language from a bill aimed at halting national security leaks, The Hill reports. The about-face comes after criticism from lawmakers and civil liberties groups, the paper reports.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid won't be releasing his taxes despite his aggressive calls for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney to do the same, Politco reports.

More than 600 not-so-super super PACs have formed since the Supreme Court allowed them to establish themselves, reports the The Wall Street Journal.

The amateur super PACs are run by some unlikely figures, including eccentric entrepreneurs and bored teenagers. Unlike their well-heeled counterparts formed to promote specific candidates or parties, most of these PACs have missions that are a lot less mainstream
BONUS: Buzzfeed has compiled 22 C-SPAN videos of lawmakers from the '90s, titled "The '90s, As Experienced on C-SPAN." That's right. There are Jurassic Park, Seinfeld and even Baywatch references, all captured for posterity.
