That's fine. But what have we come to when a Congressman who genuinely supports economic opportunities for all citizens regardless of race or gender feels compelled to host a job seminar that favors special classes of people?
A spokeswoman for the Congressman sportingly says its example of a "low-cost, high-return services that Members of Congress can be providing to their constituents during an economic downturn." She's right, though I don't think it sends a very good message about the Congressman's attitude towards affirmative action in federal contracts. Can't blame him for working the system, anyway.
