I have to agree with Mr. Glazerman that I just don't have any enthusiasm for Representative Tom Davis' proposal to add one voting representative for the District of Columbia to Congress in exchange for giving Utah one extra representative. I agree with Jonathan Turley that this solution seems like it is elevating politics over constitutional law. And any time that there is a contest regarding interpreting the U.S. Constitution between Representative Davis and Dr. Turley I would put my money on the GWU law professor. The most glaring weakness I see in the suggestion is that it does nothing to address District representation in the Senate.
