The Tampa Tribune
February 3, 1999

Nearly six years ago, Attorney General Janet Reno persuaded Congress to pass a law making it a federal crime to blockade or to commit acts of violence at abortion clinics. But in early 1999, Jacqueline Soteropoulos used TRACFED to examine what the government was doing with the law. Her finding: at both the national level and in her back yard, the law was little used. In fact, the U.S. Attorney in Tampa had not prosecuted a single one of the seven referrals made to him under the law since its passage. Her front-page article ran on February 3, 1999.
