Wingnut Welfare

WINGNUT WELFARE….TPM reports that the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights has hired Hans von Spakovsky as a “special assistant.” How heartwarming. This means that the guy reponsible for the infamous purging of the voter rolls in Florida before the 2000 election (just one among many of his greatest hits) will now be helping out with the Justice Department’s monitoring of the 2008 election. I feel safer already.
