Too Hot For WaPo

Views

With the Senate still deadlocked over the nomination of vote-suppression guru Hans von Spakovsky to the FEC, two former Justice Department officials writing at TPMCafe urge the Dems to hold firm.

Their op-ed, by the way, was rejected by the Washington Post – after the paper ran an editorial urging the Senate to approve von Spakovsky (“a flawed FEC is better than no FEC at all”) and a George Will column that, beyond urging von Spakovsky’s confirmation, attacked the former Department officials who’d opposed it. They respond to Will here as well.
