From wealhtheow, we have this post in which she links to an article about how a US House Democrat from CA wants to re-instate HUAC. Though she of course doesn't say that directly as HUAC has a very deservedly bad name.

The Patriot Act didn't create a commission of Congresspeople who's job was to hear all kinds of random spurious evidence about terrible conspiracies against the US government. It just (among other things) gives some really broad powers to the FBI. That's pretty questionable, but I think a set of public hearings rooting out domestic terrorists would be much, much worse.
