Harris blamed Barry for engaging in racial division instead of helping to create a blueprint for an election system in which no American ever again doubts whether his or her vote counts.
Barry was a partisan Gore supporter, as were her liberal colleagues on the politicized civil rights commission. She refused to allow Republicans on the commission to see or comment on her report before it was leaked to the media.
Harris testified yesterday before a Senate committee. She is a principled, Christian woman and it is nice to see her answering the lies of her opponents. Maybe other Republicans will develop a backbone.
