New Senate Bill gives warrantless e-mail searches to 22 agencies

CNET article

The new Senate bill Patrick Leahy is pushing lets 22 federal agencies read your e-mails without a warrant. It has upsides and downsides. People at these agencies will now get constant personal calls from people working at other agencies asking them to check e-mail accounts "as a favor", making them feel loved. I also picked up the implication that campus cops would be able to check university accounts, and they'll end up spending so much time monitoring co-ed sex messages that they won't harrass people at campus bars nearly as often.

Anyone see any downsides?
