It's always good to see democracy score a win against segregationism

From Bill Morlin, Nevada’s speaker-designate declines position after reports of controversial views surface Hatewatch 11/24/20147:

The speaker-designate of Nevada’s State Assembly is declining the position just days after reports surfaced detailing his controversial views on blacks, women, gays, Israel and fellow Republicans.

The views of Republican legislator Ira Hansen – considered racist by many – received extensive attention in Nevada and elsewhere, including the Washington Post, after they were first reported Thursday by Dennis Myers, a columnist for the Reno News & Review.
Good. I'm glad to see it.
