Today in misogynistic attacks on professional women:
A committee in the North Carolina House of Representatives will consider legislation that would begin impeachment proceedings against North Carolina Secretary of State Elaine Marshall on Wednesday. The House Rules Committee will consider two resolutions related to a possible impeachment during a meeting Wednesday morning.
Representative Chris Millis (R-Pender) will introduce the resolutions. The move comes months after he called attention to the fact that Marshall was commissioning notaries public who are not legal residents of the United States. Millis demanded Marshall’s resignation in March, after her office issued commissioned to people holding DACA cards, a program started by the Obama administration that allows certain illegal aliens who entered the US as minors to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and eligibility for a work permit.
Millis is a rabid anti-immigrant nut-job, who has sponsored bills ranging from punishing cities and employers for helping & hiring them, to making sure their cars get towed and impounded if they don’t have a driver’s license handy when pulled. And of course he doesn’t want them to get said driver’s license either, but I’m sure he doesn’t grasp the hypocrisy of that. Bottom line, DACA card holders who are also granted Notary powers are under the very same statutory restrictions as others granted that authority, they face the same legal consequences (Civil & Criminal) for abusing that authority as citizens do, and the Statute itself only requires applicants to “Reside legally in the United States.” Which that DACA card covers. Case closed. Next?
