    Conducting an illegal foreign policy seems like a serious crime to deserve only 3 years.

    Is there any more info on this law? And is that really the only punishment speaking illegaly on the behalf of your nation will get you.

    Also, what does this mean. If the Govener of New York talked to the President of Syria with authorization, would this be illegal under the Logan act?

    Only with multiple foreign government workers. If you shag each one individually, you're ok.;)

    So maybe a million Americans who have written to foriegn governments asking them to release prisoners of conscience could go to jail. What were the authors of this law thinking of.

    Derek, note how it says defeat the measures of the United States.

    So unless we were allied with that government, then no.

    It came about when some famous author talked to the French King on behalf of the US and made France think the US was Anti-French.
