Thursday on Political Rewind: The U.S. House passed H.R. 1 yesterday. If passed by the Senate and signed into law, it would have have have sweeping consequences for Georgia election law. The legislation would weaken state-imposed voter ID laws, mandate automatic voter registration and restore voting enfranchisement to people previously incarcerated in prison.

Lee and Me: A Southerner's Reckoning with the Myth of the Lost Cause.
