Rep. Darrell Issa (right) decided to stop work on a bill that would restructure Washington, D.C., hiring practices.
DC Vote Executive Director Ilir Zherka was less enthusiastic.
"While we're pleased that [Issa's] pulling the bill back, we are concerned that his threat of the bill to move the Council in a specific way, or even to move the council to action, is inappropriate, and not something he would do or allow to be done to the City Council in his own Congressional district," Zherka said.
