Earlier this week, a panel of federal judges ruled that residents of the District of Columbia do not have the right to a voting representative in Congress. Some Constitutional scholars argue that this was the Founding Fathers’ intent, but activists vow they’ll take their fight to the Supreme Court. Diane and her guests discuss the legal arguments on both sides and talk about where the issue goes from here.
