He claims he wants small government.

He swears he works to bring freedom to his constituents.

But earlier this week, Rep. Tim Scott voted in big-government fashion to deny citizens a freedom that’s as basic as protection of a personal password.

As a result of this vote from Scott and other Republicans, it’s now a-okay for companies to make employees and job applicants reveal their passwords to social media websites. A boss can sign in to a worker’s or applicant’s account, see who her “friends” are, and check out any comments she made. If the worker/applicant refuses (or if the boss doesn’t like what he sees)? Goodbye, job.
