Eugenics “no” votes say a lot about the General Assembly

Just how unapologetically extreme are the people running the current North Carolina General Assembly?

This extreme: Yesterday, when the House of Representatives finally voted to toss a rather paltry and too-little, too-late bit of compensation for the victims of the state’s infamous, mid-20th Century “eugenics” program, the majority Republican caucus was almost equally divided.

Thirty-five GOP’ers voted for it and 31 (47% of those voting) voted against. Click here to see the vote.
