China: Blogger's Congressional support

Illegally-detained Beijing or Bust blogger Wu Hao is a legal permanent resident of the United States. Posted today on his sister Nina's website is a letter sent by Wu's Congressman Jim Gerlach to China's ambassador to the United States, Zhou Wenzhong.

“I would greatly appreciate if you would inform me as to the reason(s) Mr. Wu is being detained and what your government's intentions are relative to a criminal prosecution or his release,” writes the Republican representative for Pennsylvania state's 6th district.
