WASHINGTON D.C. – Aware of the seeming neglect of women’s rights in various areas of Republican Party policy recently, nervous 22 year-old intern Kevin Tisley suggested to advisers and the wider GOP committee Wednesday that everyone just stop talking for a second and take a look at the 19th Amendment.
