A Diverse America Votes To Uphold The Constitution; A Largely Male White America Votes To Abrogate It | Marcy Wheeler, emptywheel.net 🔗

The Democrats who voted in favor included 11 women, and 13 people of color or Latinx (Ted Lieu missed the vote recovering from a heart procedure). Several are immigrants. These Democrats voted to uphold the Constitution a bunch of white men, several of them owners of African-American slaves, wrote hundreds of years ago.

The Republicans who voted against were all white. Just two were women.
