U.S. Reps Propose Bill of Attainder

John Richardson reports on several members of the Congressional Black Caucus, who are proffering what looks to me like a Bill of Attainder, which targets George Zimmerman by name. Granted, this is merely a resolution, rather than a law that enacts punishment, so it could arguably not be considered one as a matter of law. But certainly, condemning someone by name insults the spirit of the constitutional provision prohibiting them.

  1. Are you sure you got the right link, there? I didn’t see any mention of a congressional resolution.

  2. Nah, resolutions of censure or praise are fairly common actually. “It is the sense of congress that the acts of terrorist Mohammad Bin Blowincrapup are deplorable and inconsistent with good and nice things in the world” etc… etc…
