Voting Rights Act Fix Stalled by GOP

I had a report of Rep. James Sensenbrenner meeting with a representative of the NAACP last month in an effort to fix the Voting Rights Act (VRA) that had been eviscerated by the Supreme Court's Shelby County v. Holder decision.

A new report by Emily Wilkins in the Dallas Morning News says an initiative by the Congressional Black Caucus is stalled by the GOP leadership.

So, why the silence from Sensenbrenner who styles himself (falsely) a champion of the VRA?

Because when it comes to a choice between GOP voter obstruction and voting rights, Sensenbrenner takes the voter obstruction every time.

Go ahead Sensenbrenner, prove me wrong and wage war with the House leadership over the VRA.
