.In 'Washington, DC, Roscoe was known as very civic active and political savy spouse. Sheappeared frequently on Television and was often mentioned in the Press. Roscoe like Ron, prior to coming to Washington, DC was passionate about ending the violent, oppressive practice of Apartheid. In the 1970's, Oakland and Berkeley, San Francisco's East Bay, led the way of the anti-apartheid movement. On college campuses across America students began to push for the end to this South African policy. In the 1980's Annette Lantos, wife of Congressman Tom Lantos (deceased of California) invited Roscoe to join the Congressional Human Rights Caucus' Committee of 21. This bi-partisan caucus of the United States House of Representative was organized by Congressman Lantos, who was a survivor of the Camps during the Holocaust. The Committee of 21 is a program for women Members of the House and Senate and wives of Members of Congress. The Committee encourages the women to "adopt" victims of human rights abuse. The caucus first focused on the ill-treatment of Jews within the Soviet Union. When the Human Right Caucus directed its attention to South Africa, it became involved inthecase of Murphy Morobe a black South African ANC leader in the fight against apartheid. Roscoe was asked to "adopt" Mr. Morobe through the Committee of 21. Mr. Morobe and two of his colleagues in South African prisons escaped and sought refuge at the U.S, Consulate in Johannesburg.

A lame duck Congress went back to work today, which makes us wonder: Can it be any lamer than it's been the last four years? MOMocrats Cynematic, Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills are not encouraged by reports that Harry Reid will not pursue confirmation of Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch, leaving it to the next session when Mitch McConnell will be the leader. Judging from McConnell's record since vowing to just say no to everything the President proposes, we don't think this will go well. Political discussion from the progressive point of view by the MOMocrats. Produced by Engender Media Group.
