Two weeks ago, Sen. David Vitter began embarking on an ambitious project: He is reading the Gang of Eight’s 844-page amnesty bill. All the way through. And tweeting his concerns.

He hasn’t finished yet, but so far this has proven to be a very worthwhile exercise.

Unlike Sen. Marco Rubio’s chief of staff, Vitter leaves his Twitter feed unlocked so that anyone can review and critique his findings.

The #Gangof8 just released their 844 page #immigration bill. I’ll start going through it immediately. Stay tuned for updates and #Gof8Facts
