(The Return of) Ignatz, by Sam Heldman

Wednesday, June 25, 2003

I have previously said complimentary things about Alabama's Republican Governor here, because he is tackling tax reform. Those things remain true. However ...

My warm feelings towards him have almost entirely disappeared, because of his inexcusable veto of the legislation that would have restored voting rights to many ex-felons. The law would have brought much-needed fairness to Alabama's law on this issue, with no downside except to the partisan interests of the Republican Party. (See here). On this issue, the Governor chose partisanship over fairness. I imagine that Ed Still will have more on the issue.
