North Carolina is receiving plenty of national attention for the wacko legislators in Raleigh who are ready to move us back to the nineteeth century or off to another world. I’m not just talking about the NC House resolution to declare our exemption from the US Constitution so a local government can certify an official religion for its citizens, or the sure-to-get-idiot-box-news legislation about women’s breasts. There are serious proposals from legislators to target certain voters and make it especially hard for them to cast a ballot. Melissa Harris-Perry did a segment of her MSNBC show about these measures to rig the election system; watch it at this link. Rachel Maddow has also weighed in with this segment. For those more inclined to read, try this post from Ari Berman of The Nation magazine.
