Here are some of the week’s most notable quotes.
“Redistricting and gerrymandering create an unnatural advantage for one party or the other and the court’s alteration of that would have a profound effect the politics of the state.”
“I don’t think there’s anything racist about it at all.”
“Our regulations are lax, but that doesn’t mean you have to drive a Tahoe through them.”
TFN President Kathy Miller, on a Trump administration policy that favors health care workers who refuse to do their jobs if they have religious or moral objections to certain services or to the individuals receiving them.
“This policy makes a mockery of religious freedom by turning faith into a weapon to discriminate and harm people simply because of who they are or the health care services they need. It’s outrageous and dangerous to make care for an LGBT person, a woman or anyone else dependent on the personal beliefs of a doctor or emergency care worker rather than on medical necessity.”
