Federal repercussions this time. Apparently, the career civil rights lawyers at the DOJ voted to reject the proposed law, but their politically-appointed supervisors overruled them. WaPo has it here.
For those of you out there who are ok with this law, but might still have an open mind, read the piece carefully, because the DOJ lawyers did a fine job of laying out all of the problems with the bill, as well as a pretty good number of fixes, of which we wish the WaPo had mentioned more.
We would love to get our hot little hands on the actual August 25 staff memo.
