More of the new Jim Crow:
Law enforcement officials in Waller County, Texas, on Wednesday reportedly arrested Jacob Aronowitz, a field director for Democratic U.S. House candidate Mike Siegel (photo), after asking Siegel’s political affiliation.
What did Aronowitz do to get arrested?
He delivered a letter from Siegel to a clerk on the county executive’s staff. The letter was a proposed solution to the local government’s attempts to prevent students from a historically black university, Prairie View A&M University, from voting.
