Peter Kirsanow is now serving on the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. He was appointed by President Bush, against opposition so strong that
in December 2001, the Commission’s Chairperson told the White House that it would take federal marshals to seat Mr. Kirsanow. The majority on the Commission fought his appointment all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
I honestly don't remember much about the fuss - personal issues took precedence at the time.
On the Center for Individual Freedom's web site, Mr. Kirsanow is interviewed about voter disenfranchisement.
Expect that topic to continue to be hot for many years to come, particularly in the Ohio area. Ken Blackwell, Ohio's popular Secretary of State, endured a lot of pressure during the 2004 election. He's currently running for the governorship. Check out Blackwell - if you think he'd make a good governor, then head over to A Face Made 4 Radio, A Voice Made 4 the Internet, and look at the Ohio Blogroll to see what you can do. At least, consider adding a link to the site. When I finish this post, I'm going to modify my sidebar to add a link.
