Coronavirus Eroding Privacy

Wall Street Journal, April 15, 2020 11:03 am ET

Once the genie is out of the bottle, it never goes back in. A fundamental pillar of freedom is our privacy, which is why I have grave concerns with Big Tech attempting to “assist” government during this unique period. For those who have read George Orwell’s 1984, it’s a future we hope to never have. The advancements of Artificial Intelligence with Google, Apple, and others grabbing and sharing our data with any Government without our consent is alarming.

As a young Conservative, I have been calling for a Cyber Bill of Rights. We should update the 4th Amendment, which prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures, into the 21st century to include our digital footprints. We are a country built on liberty and freedom which has made us a resilient nation, that will innovate and get out of this pandemic safely at the appropriate time. Once we return to a version of “normal life”, I hope it is not at the expense of our civil liberties, privacy, and government overreach.

I need your help...

The time for change is now. Maryland’s 1st Congressional District is ready for fresh conservative leadership! If elected, I will bring Energy, Passion, and Grit to Congress and give us the strong voice we deserve.
