    This one was too close to its end to get much coverage. The next one though already has a number of pissed signers that will run the count up early. If it gets pulled down at day 16, a distinct possibility, that might get some coverage. I'll sign again as will most folks following this issue.

    I hope EPIC picks up the new one and publicizes it so we consolidate efforts.

    Boing Boing: White House TSA petition goes dark as it nears the finish line, disappears when the lights come back on

    A White House petition about the TSA's screening procedures was 90 percent of the way to completion when Wired ran a story giving it a final push. The White House's petition site went down for unannounced maintenance, and when it came back up, the petition had "expired" -- though the Electronic Privacy Information Center says it still had time left on the clock:​
    At approximately 11:30 am EDT, the White House removed a petition about the TSA airport screening procedures from the White House "We the People" website. About 22,500 of the 25,000 signatures necessary for a response from the Administration were obtained when the White House unexpectedly cut short the time period for the petition. The site also went down for "maintenance" following an article in Wired that sought support for the campaign.​
    Update: The petition's creator reportedly disputes EPIC's version of the timeline, saying that the petition had run out its time during the outage.​

    Was able to get the petition link on the TSA Blog. Suspect Rugape was approving comments.
