Congressman Jared Polis (D-CO), speaking to me in an interview yesterday:
You know, the more Congress can look like our country, in general: we need more women around here, we need more minorities, we need more gays and lesbians. Congress can function best when it reflects the broad diversity of our country.
That whole interview will be up at Campus Progress tomorrow, and I’ve been doing plenty of other reporting these past couple days. Expect something early next week-ish on topics related to this afternoon’s Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) press conference, where I got to ask Barney Frank a question! (That’s still the most exciting thing that’s happened in my life recently.)
Also something on health care and university adjunct faculty. Because hey, I need to write about something that isn’t gay.
