Republican Congressman Hosts Job Info Session For Women And Minorites

Rep. Randy Forbes is hosting a seminar designed to assist women and minorities in getting government contracts.

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?
