From Texas John Cornyn (R)John Carter (R) support SOPA.  Carter is a co-sponsor.  Both have received sizable donations from SOPA related groups.

Those opposing SOPA include Ron Paul (R), Lloyd Doggett (D), Blake Farenthold (R), and Sheila Jackson-Lee (D).

The idea of Ron Paul becoming the leader of the fee world keeps me up at night, but he had it right in a letter he wrote opposing SOPA,

“The SOPA as written, however, is overly broad and would cause serious and long term damage to the technology industry, one of the few bright spots in our economy.”
