Pombo & "109th Congress deplorable on civil rights"

SFChron: 109th Congress deplorable on civil rights, NAACP says

"The NAACP describes the performance of Congress on civil rights issues in 2005 and 2006 as "unacceptable" in a federal legislative report card released Wednesday.

Some of the issues the nation's oldest civil rights organization considers important include: education, raising the minimum wage, health care funding, community policing, gun control, Head Start, student loan funding, voting rights, HIV funding and housing.


...The region's only F went to Republican Richard Pombo, who was voted out of office in November.
