Are Republicans Breaking U.S. Law in Honduras?

In the past week, seven congressional Republican have traveled to Honduras to visit Interim President Roberto Micheletti, who ousted Manuel Zelaya in a coup on June 28. An article in Counterpunch says that it seems these representatives have violated the Logan Act. The Logan Act states that anyone who communicates with foreign governments with the intent of influencing policy, without government authorization , is subject to fine and imprisonment. The Obama Administration does not recognize the Micheletti government.
