Funny, you don't hear Republicans complaining about Big Brother in examples like these recent ones. And don't get me started on conservatives' supposed dislike of "activist judges"!
(The Hill)The attempt by conservative House Republicans to intimidate Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is an abuse of power and antithetical to our federalist structure of government. Congress has no oversight authority over local district attorneys. Former President Donald Trump’s enablers are engaged in nothing but a shameful attempt to protect him from legal scrutiny.
On Saturday, House Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and his fellow MAGA House committee chairs, James Comer (R-Ky.) of Oversight and Bryan Steil (R-Wis.) of House Administration, sent Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg a second letter demanding that he appear before them.
(WaPo)[Ron DeSantis] appointed a new oversight board after Disney criticized education legislation he had promoted that prohibited teachers from discussing gender and sexual orientation in early grades. Critics derided the policy as a homophobic and discriminatory “don’t say gay” bill. DeSantis signed it into law last year.
But in a bureaucratic coup, Disney and the previous board signed an agreement on Feb. 8 — the day before the Florida House passed a bill paving the way for the DeSantis appointees — that transferred much of the board’s power to Disney.
(In delicious irony, Disney turned the tables on DeSantis. See how in "Mickey Mouse snookers Ron DeSantis" link below.)
