Voting Rights Hearing on The Hill

According to the schedule, you can look for Mayor Adrian M. Fenty to join Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton this morning on Capitol Hill, where a hearing on the District's voting rights legislation is scheduled for 10 a.m.

The hear is before the Judiciary subcommittee in room 2141 at the Rayburn House Office Building.

Among those testifying: Captain Yolanda Lee, a member of the D.C. National Guard, an Iraq War veteran and a D.C. resident, who graduated from Ballou High School and the University of the District of Columbia; Viet Dinh, a Georgetown law professor and a former U.S. Assistant Attorney General for Legal Policy in the Ashcroft Justice Department under President Bush (the office that advises the President and the Attorney General concerning constitutional matters); and Wade Henderson, President and CEO of the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights.
