MSNBC's Alex Wagner Laments Lack of 'Gender Parity' in Congress

Arguing that "[o]ur laws need to be drafted not just in the spirit of equality, but in the practice of it," MSNBC's Alex Wagner insists that "we must continue to ask ourselves why there isn't gender parity in Congress." In other words, in Wagner's mind, it's patently unjust to have federal law shaped by a Congress which is disproportionately male compared to the general population, never mind that every single member of Congress was elected to that office by an elective franchise equally open to women as to men.

Wagner's comments were shared on the Lean Forward network's Facebook page this morning as part of the network's efforts to plug Wagner's new 4 p.m. Eastern time slot.
