    Civil Discourse is a local podcast hosted by former State Senator Peter Bear and Eric Brant.

    This show aims to easily and accurately break down complex political situations for working America.


    This week we will have an update on the scandals surrounding Chris Christie and Bob McDonnell.  A bipartisan team of lawmakers has introduced legislation to reinstate the Voting Rights Act, but does it go far enough?  The DC Circuit Court has struck down Net Neutrality. What does this mean and why is it important for everyone who uses the internet?

    Supreme Court to Hear Case to End Voting Rights Act

    in Politics Progressive

    Supreme Court Hears Voting Rights Act Challenge Brought By Shelby County, Alabama  
    Despite our progress, discrimination continues to limit opportunities for African Americans and other people of color. The Voting Rights Act remains an essential tool in defending the voting rights of African-American voters and other voters of color who live in places with the worst and most persistent history of discrimination in voting.
     
    “In one of the most closely watched tests of the reach of the Voting Rights Act this year, Texas has just submitted its proposed redistricting changes to a federal court — not the U.S. Justice Department — for approval. Some Republican governors and attorneys general have advocated bypassing the Obama administration, arguing that they will get a less politicized answer from the courts, even though a Justice Department spokeswoman says the Attorney General has objected to only about “1 percent” of the proposals since the law was enacted.”
