Major Shout Outs to Eleanor Holmes Norton

You may have missed it yesterday amidst all of the Hillary hoopla, but D.C. Representative, Eleanor Holmes Norton used her time at the podium to bring to the forefront an issue that should bring great shame to lovers of democracy everywhere. During her speech, Eleanor Holmes Norton urged the Senate to pass the D.C. Statehood bill. D.C. residents pay taxes, fight and die in wars, yet receive no legislative representation in our federal government. It's outrageous to think that a city full of Americans can host the seat of government, but not take part in it.
Major Shout Outs to Eleanor Holmes Norton!
