Holder, Part Deux

No time for an in depth blog tonight, but what’s up with AG Eric Holder’s pursuit of getting congressional representation for Washington D.C? Never mind the career lawyers he first consulted who said, “no way, it’s unconstitutional”. Holder went past them and into political territory to make the case that the always-Democratic District of Columbia might some day pick up seats in Congress. Nice, Mr. Holder. When legal opinion fails you, go for partisan politics.

Ahh, Eric, I was so on your side when you dumped the bullshit Stevens indictment. Now, you’re just angling for a partisan win. Every lawyer outside the beltway worth his salt knows that D.C. is not a state. Why don’t you?
