Using the word Redskins over the air is not obscene or profane, according to a ruling by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The ruling on Thursday was in reference to a suit brought by several people who challenged the license of the radio station, WWXX 94.3, owned by Washington’s football team owner Daniel Snyder. The plaintiffs claimed that the repeated use of the word Redskins violated rules against indecent content. The ruling affects WWXX.

 

Virginia Voting Rights

If you are an ex-offender in Virginia and currently cannot vote, you may soon need to learn your polling place.

Voting rights are being re-stored to a little more than five-thousand ex-offenders in Virginia. Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe says the state will also make filling out applications less complicated for more serious offenders. The state will shorten the form for re-instating voting rights from 13 pages to one.
