McHenry County Blog | Durbin Tries to Trade Thomson Prison for Independent International Religious Persecution Watchdog’s Existence

McHenry County's Cal Skinner writes: McHenry County Blog | Durbin Tries to Trade Thomson Prison for Independent International Religious Persecution Watchdog’s Existence:

I've been following the commission but had no idea Drubin was too. How Illinois of him to trade an outfit advocating fundamental American principles, for a white elephant prison Illinois can't afford.
In typical Illinois style, U.S. Senate Dick Durbin has been fingered by CQ Weekly’a Shawn Zelle as the one who put a hold on the unanimous consent agreement passage of re-authorization of the US Commission on Religious Freedom.

This is the independent agency that is credited with pushing the Bush administration to understand the north–south conflict in Sudan as primarily a religious one, according to Nina Shea, the director of the Center for Religious Freedom at the Hudson Institute and one of the US Commission on Religious Freedom.
