I just wanted you to know that I have sent pages about redistricting [“Five Districts, No Representation?
,” and “Reviving Bipartisanship
,” News] and Planned Parenthood [“The State's Planned Parenthood Trap
,” News] in the June 10 issue to both the attorney general and the secretary of health and human services. Hopefully the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice will now start the preclearance investigation of congressional districts and all districts redistricting with a view toward not
approving them. Also hopefully, the Department of Health and Human Services will do to the Texas Planned Parenthood state funding ban what they did to Indiana's: kill it.
Kudos to the reporters who wrote those stories.
