Fact Check: Not One Conservative-Led American City is a “Shit Hole”?

Visitor Frank, rejecting empirical evidence that Republican congressional districts aren’t better off than Democratic districts, has recently declared that he doesn’t need to waste his time on evaluating the available facts. Instead, he has decided to try posing a different question:

House Democrats Fail To Block Amendment Banning License Plate Surveillance Cameras By Department of Transportation
