The Carpetbagger/Reconstructionist, Sensenbrenner

Ol' Jimbo continues to fight the Civil War while demonstrating his complete ignorance of the bill(s) that HE SPONSORED.

....Sensenbrenner’s bill, H.R. 885, is co-sponsored by Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) and multiple members of the Congressional Black Caucus. It revives federal control through the Voting Rights Act over every state election law change. In 2013, the Supreme Court’s Shelby County vs. Holder decision struck down this power as an outdated and unconstitutional relic from a half-century ago....

...speaking of "relics from a half-century ago," we have.........Jim Sensenbrenner!!

...In the last Congress, Rep. Sensenbrenner, a large number of Democrats, and a small number of Republicans introduced H.R. 3899. H.R. 3899 was identical to H.R. 885. The bill died in 2014, thanks to the opposition of Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) and the presence of many Judiciary Committee members who hail from states that would be threatened with renewed federal control over state election laws...

And then he pulls a Harf!

Last March, Rep. Sensenbrenner was caught on hidden camera at a hometown town hall by James O’Keefe demonstrating that he did not understand details of his bill — including the fact it would exclude white voters from protection.

When you add this very odd fixation to his "for it before I was against it" vote on Cromnibus, you have all the markings of a politician who can easily be primaried out of office.
