    please listen and comment. Hans Von Spakovsky got another free ride, being quoted as a former Bush Admin official, not a chief architect of voter suppression! I commented and sent a message to the ombudsperson.

    My comment:
    Carrie Johnson should have introduced Hans Von Spakovsky as not just a former Bush Administration official, but as a major architect of voter suppression efforts. He used his position in the Federal Election Commission as cover to promote specious "voter ID" laws that keep tens of thousands of Democrats from voting. Not telling your listeners what he stands for is like not telling us that Wayne LaPierre is president of the NRA when he's quoted in opposition to gun control.
