That D.C. House Seat, One More Time


Since I first approached the subject in this NRO piece a year and a half ago, I have blogged more times than I can recall on the unconstitutional idea of giving the District of Columbia a seat in the House of Representatives, without statehood.  The good people at the Federalist Society asked me to square off with an advocate of the idea, Washington attorney Richard Bress, in the FedSoc journal Engage.  The February issue with our “Point-Counterpoint” is now online here, with lots of other good stuff in the issue besides; for a direct link to our exchange, go here.
