Harvard grad Senator Chuck Schumer thinks Jefferson wrote the Bill of Rights

Following Barack Obama’s “the United States has 57 states” and Rep. Sheila Jackson’s “The Constitution is 400 years old” epiphanies, we’ve now learned that Thomas Jefferson authored the Bill of Rights, thanks to the loquacious Harvard-educated Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-NY.

Unfortunately, Mr. Jefferson was American Minister to France during the deliberations over the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, and James Madison must receive the credit for shepherding the two trailblazing documents to fruition.

During a debate in the Senate on Tuesday on a new Democrat-sponsored constitutional amendment, Schumer said, “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.”

In essence, the proposal supported by 41 Senate Democrats, and an Independent aims to muzzle free speech, by granting the government absolute control over campaign financing by individuals, groups and corporations. It stands zero chance of passage and it is highly unlikely that the author of the Declaration of Independence would ever have countenanced granting such power to any federal authority.
