PIPA Suffers Another Significant Roadblock

PIPA’s been having a rough day.

After yesterday’s protest, scores of congressmembers have withdrawn their support for the bill, its sponsor is considering editing out the search engine provisions, and now, according to Politico’s unnamed sources, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (pictured) “won't whip Democratic votes” for the much-maligned bill.

PIPA is scheduled for a cloture vote on Tuesday but it’s becoming less and less likely that it will garner the 60 votes needed to override the filibuster threatened by Rand Paul, Ron Wyden and other Senators.

Reid spokesman Adam Jentleson declined to comment on whether Reid would release Democrats.
