I'm not sure I can parse this statement from U.S. Rep. Tim Griffin, so I pass it along verbatim:
Stopping theft of American intellectual property by foreign rogue web sites is critical to protect ideas and jobs. I welcome input on SOPA from all sides, and I share some concerns of constituents who have contacted me. I was hopeful we could revise SOPA to address concerns raised, and I remain hopeful. However, I am taking a second look at SOPA to see if that is possible. I will not support a bill unless my constituents are comfortable with it.
Griffin is a sponsor of the legislation. Some other rats have jumped from this leaky ship in recent days. He might be looking for a lifeboat. Even Dr. No Boozman has bailed out.
I've asked Griffin's office if it would help if I said I was uncomfortable with it. Or vice versa.
UPDATE: After a few more hours of second looking, Griffin's office issued a statement at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday that said he now opposed the legislation.
