Mississippi, which asks whether a prosecutor’s repeated use of peremptory challenges to remove black people from the jury pool violated the Constitution, for this blog.

Daddy’s Hangout 2019 NCAA Tournament Prediction

It’s that time of year again and that’s March Madness of course. Honestly, this is my favorite time of the year because anything can happen, and it usually does. Coming into the tournament, Duke is the overwhelming favorite and deservedly so. Zion Williamson is the phenom that everyone talked about and then some. In the ACC tournament, he became the first freshman since Kevin Durant to average 30 points and 10 boards in a conference tournament. There are quite a few other teams that have a gre...

Voting Rights Primer: Ross Declines To Answer Key Questions About Census Citizenship Question

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross was grilled Thursday by the House Oversight Committee about his move to add a census citizenship question. Many of the explanations he gave about damning 2017 emails — emails that contradicted his official justification for adding the question — didn’t pass the smell test. He also refused to say whether he spoke to then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions about adding the question, or to anyone else at the White House besides Steve Bannon. Ross was not the only admin...
