Real reporters don’t get to think very long about their reports. So some have already filed the news of yesterday’s meeting at the Statehouse to goad the legislature into fixing Iowa’s voting laws for the digital age. Here is an excerpt from the report by Radio Iowa’s O. Kay Henderson:
Doug Jones spoke at the statehouse over the noon-hour, and he says there are even more flaws to fix. “The issue won’t go away. Iowa’s election law contains these clauses that really need to be fixed. There are major oversights in the law,” Jones says. “The problems are national…the problem is for the state to take control of the situation and do some pro-active work.”
My own report on the meetings will be published later.
