NAACP wants state rep to serve from prison

The title of this post probably made you say “Wait…what?” Trust me, you’re not alone. The Massachusetts NAACP thinks a convicted batterer should continue serving as a State Representative from prison. (“How?” seems not to be much of a concern.)


Weasel Zippers calls it “unreal.”

The New England Area Conference of the NAACP is asking Massachusetts lawmakers to delay expulsion hearings for Rep. Carlos Henriquez.

The state House of Representatives is expected to debate a recommendation from the Ethics Committee that called for the expulsion of Henriquez, a Boston Democrat who is serving a six-month jail sentence after being convicted last month of assaulting a former girlfriend in July 2012.

The NAACP will no doubt screech about racism if they don’t get their way.

Try to think of one Republican–black or white–who could pull this off. Yeah, neither can I.
