Mike's Blog Round Up
July 19, 2022

Election Law Blog: A bipartisan bill aimed at reforming the Electoral College Act might be able to save the 2024 presidential election from certain GOP subversion.

Texas Tribune: Who else is in the crosshairs of anti-abortion forces in Texas? Virtually any person and group that helps a woman terminate a pregnancy anywhere for any reason.

Naked Capitalism: The news from Ukraine is not good.

Blue Virginia: Governor Glenn Youngkin wants a Robert E. Lee hagiographer on the Virginia Board of Historic Resources.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
"Everyone should do all in his power to collect and disseminate the truth, in the hope that it may find a place in history and descend to posterity. History is not the relation of campaigns and battles and generals or other individuals, but that which shows the principles for which the South contended and which justified her struggle for those principles." (Robert E. Lee, 1870)
