Open letter to Rep. Paul Broun Jr.
To the Editor:
Your shameful attempt to defund enforcement of the Voting Rights Act last week on the floor of the U.S. Congress is stupefying and embarrassing to not only Georgians but the entire United States.
Just which part of your infamous constitutional litmus test did this not pass:
• Is it Right/Moral?
• Is it Constitutional?
• Is it Necessary?
• Is it Affordable?
I could say so much here about past pain, current heroes and continued Republican abuse of African-Americans, but I feel you are so out of touch with the real world, that it would be a waste of time.
Do you even realize that you have been and continue to be the No. 1 laughingstock in the entire U.S. Congress?
