Washington Post editorial: "Cutting the purse strings" E-mail

On December 7, 2010, the Washington Post editorial board opined that "DEMOCRATIC congressional leaders profess commitment to equal rights for D.C. residents. They chalk up their failure to deliver on voting rights to having been outmaneuvered by Republicans and a wily gun lobby, not to any lack of commitment on the issue. If that is indeed the case, there should be no reason why Democrats wouldn't take advantage of the final days of their majority to address an issue second in importance only to voting rights for the District: budget autonomy."

Tom Toles on D.C.'s lack of democracy E-mail

Washington Post political cartoonist Tom Toles recently addressed the lack of democracy in the District of Columbia in a cartoon entitiled "A non-issue for the Tea Party?".  The cartoon was published in the Washington Post and can be found on line at: http://voices.washingtonpost.com/tomtoles/2010/10/a_non_issue_for_the_tea_party.html.

 
Washington Post's Editorial Board gets it wrong E-mail

In a June 20, 2010 editorial, the Washington Post editorial board pushes for a dead end - the "D.C. Voting Rights Act" and disses District residents' desire to regain their full democratic rights by having the commercial and residential areas of the District admitted to the union as the 51st state.  Statehood is the only way to regain our rights that Congress stole from us over two centuries ago that the voters of D.C. have ever approved.

Statehood activists Charles Cassell, Sen. Michael D. Brown, Elinor Hart, Ann Loikow and Anne Roberts respond to the Post. It is noteworthy that the Ward Three Democratic Committee, which strongly endorsed statehood last year, overwhelming voted on June 17, 2010 to support D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton's major rival in the Democratic primary, Douglas Sloan, a strong supporter of statehood.

D.C. voting rights? Not this deal E-mail

In their April 18, 2010 editorial, the Washington Post Editorial Board came out reluctantly against the current D.C. Voting Rights Bill  finding that "sometimes compromise demands too high a price. This is such a time."  On April 22, 2010, after the House leadership pulled the bill, the Washington Post Editorial Board urged the Democrats in Congress and the White House to not be "complicit in letting the gun lobby set the agenda" and seek fair treatment of the city. For the text of both editorials, read more.

Washington Post editorial "A Civil Right, on Hold" E-mail
The Washington Post editorial board wrote on May 21, 2009:

IN THE THREE months since the U.S. Senate approved the D.C. voting rights bill, dates targeted for a House vote have come and gone with no action. An amendment eliminating most gun laws in the District and stripping city officials of their ability to regulate guns holds the bill hostage, stymieing its supporters. Now time is running out, and House Democratic leaders could use an assist from the White House.
