Ken Starr will lead the counterattack, apparently, serving as the legal equivalent of a Presa Canario for Senator Mitch McConnell (R-Ky). “This is a mission to preserve the fundamental constitutional freedom of all Americans to fully participate in our democracy,” said the Senator yesterday, of his planned legal challenge to the reforms. Right.
