Senator Barbara Boxer (D – CA): “We go all around the world saying how great democracy is, but it’s really hard for people to get to vote…”
Wednesday, November 1st, 2006
Jacob and Barnett randomly ran into Senator Barbara Boxer in a Beverly Hills, CA delicatessen while the Senator was filming an appearance on HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm. Senator Boxer has been in Congress for a total of 23 years; she has a long record of outspoken advocacy and was nice enough to talk to the WT crew on this issue. Turns out the Senator not only (basically) knows the answer to the question, she’s co-sponsoring a bill that she says is designed to make it easier for more people to vote. Check the clip.
