Earl M. Boone
House Majority Whip
Senator from Tennessee (Democratic)
“Motion to proceed with the docket,” Earl said. Noticing that the Majority Leader was indisposed, he smiled to himself as he took the liberty of penning a note to his fellow Democratic Senators.

The whip for the 23rd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is Aye.

Where is the horse gone? Where the warrior?
Where is the treasure-giver? Where are the seats at the feast?
Where are the revels in the hall?
Alas for the bright cup! Alas for the mailed warrior!
Alas for the splendour of the prince!
How that time has passed away, dark under the cover of night, as if it never were.

Official Name: An Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America to Extend Voting Rights to the District of Columbia


Overview: Grants the District of Columbia the right to vote in Presidential elections and thus awards them electoral votes in the Electoral College as well as representation in the United States Congress



Section 1: For purposes of representation in the Congress, election of the President and Vice President, and article V of this Constitution, the District constituting the seat of government of the United States shall be treated as though it were a State.

Section 2: The exercise of the rights and powers conferred under this article shall be by the people of the District constituting the seat of government, and as shall be provided by the Congress.



This bill is then honorably presented to the United States Senate for consideration in order to extend voting rights to the District of Columbia to improve the United States Law and is backed by Senators William Lawrence Oswald Jr. and Elmer Russel Stevens on January 3rd, 1959.


"I invite the Senator from Massachusetts, to lay out the bill. The Senate shall have order whilst Senator Oswald is speaking."

Senator William Lawrence Oswald Jr.

Senate Chamber, Washington D.C.
January 3rd, 1959




At the signal of the Democratic whip, Willie couldn’t help but smirk. Arising from his seat at the insistence of the President Pro Tempore he straightened his tie and regarded his fellow Senators with his trademark smile. Laying out the bill could always be fun, from a certain perspective. Especially if you have the flare for the dramatic.

You just had to tie into something bipartisan. Everyone loved bipartisanship.

“Mr. President, I rise today to lay out the XXIII Amendment to the United States Constitution. A drastic thing, some might say, but often necessary like so many amendments that have come before. For what does this amendment entail? It entails fundamental American freedoms. The right to vote. The right of representation. All things this country fought and died for.

What I have presented grants the District of Columbia, all 700,000 of it’s freedom loving citizens, just that. Freedom. The freedom to choose. Whilst the amendment does not constitute the formation of a state, as our founding fathers did not wish at the time of the capitals creation, it does lay out fundamental things they would agree with. Members of Congress of a proportion appropriate to the Districts population and the chance to express a vision of this nation's future through presidential votes.

And how could we, as not just a Senate, but as a people, deny it? Take for example the state of Vermont. A state represented on all levels of government, with half the population of our nation's capital. Should we send the message both home and abroad that we take democratic rights arbitrarily?

This is not even a partisan push! The District is known to have it’s party registration split down the middle. Republican or Democratic, it doesn’t matter. We are Americans.

Which again brings this back to what we stand for as a people. I like to think that we stand for decency, and democracy. Something that during this ever so cold war is surely so important to us all. Especially considering our foes.

Fundamentally this amendment asserts American commitment to the things we talk about daily in this chamber.

Something we might not always live up to, but something we have a chance to change.

I encourage all of my colleagues and friends to think about that, if nothing else.”

Joshua Sharp
Senator from Mississippi (Democratic)


Joshua Sharp stood up from his seat, his thin yet tall pencil neck like frame rose from the chair. He calmly looks to the President pro-tempore for recognition, seeing a curt nod from the President-pro Tempore, he clears his throat and begins.

"Mr. President. I rise before you to lay out concerns I have with the gentlemen from Massachusetts's proposed legislation. What my friend has come forward with is nothing short than the disenfranchisement of the white race for the people of the District of Colombia in general, and, more abstractly, the south.
I am not opposed to the concept of voting, so long as it's the right kind of voting. However, I am worried as to what our founding fathers would think, the capital of the united states getting mired in political issues and caught up with representation.

The Capital is managed well by a governor already! Why do you seek to increase the unemployment of the incumbent with such a radical piece of legislation? Why is there a need to fix an already running machine?

The capital of the United States has representatives, it is taxed like any other part of the country, be it some shithole in the new fucking frozen north or the hot swamps of Alabama. They already have a general head of government, the President of the Board of Commissioners.

If this system has worked without incident since the 1860s, why do we need a new government? Will it not cost the taxpayer money and funds for some swamp creatures to finally have their nature reservation?

I may also proudly point out that Representative Ross A. Collins from my very home state of Mississippi argued to cut the general well-fare and judici-I mean education, arguing that his constituents wouldn't, and I quote: 'stand for spending money on coloreds.' "

Senator William Lawrence Oswald Jr.

Senate Chamber, Washington D.C.
January 3rd, 1959






He recognised Senator Sharp almost immediately. It was hard not to. The man had certainly created a...reputation about himself over the years. Not one he necessarily agreed with, but one he would have to engage with nonetheless. Taking the others' questions he began.

“I thank my distinguished friend from Mississippi for his question. We may not agree often, and we may be as different as cats and dogs, but that does not mean that I can’t respect such a huge figure of prominence in my party.

Mr President, this amendment does not affect the South. It makes no mention of civil rights law. It makes no mention of race. Whilst it may be true that black citizens make up a substantial amount of the population, that is mere coincidence. This is about the representation of hard working Americans. I can assure the gentleman that this piece of legislation concerns the district and the district only.

And, I would point out to the gentleman, that you cannot disenfranchise those that do not have enfranchisement in the first place. This bill empowers white voters as much as anyone else, and gives them a voice in our chambers.

I take the point on the founders, Mr President. When they envisioned the capital, they merely saw it as a seat of government. Yet in their lifetimes they never saw the extent of what the District would become. It’s population has only risen, and I believe that the founders would happily amend the law surrounding the district if they saw the state of disenfranchisement today.

The founders loved procedure, that I cannot dispute, but they loved liberty more. This amendment ensures liberty. When the last major founder, James Madison, died in 1836, the population of the capital was somewhere in the 30,000’s, Mr President. That is an increase of twenty-five times the populations since his death.

As for the current state of the Districts government, this does not change. The District will not become a state. It will not enjoy the rights of a state. It will still be administered by this Congress. The President of the Board of Commissioners will keep his job. As will other servants of the public. Nothing concerning the internal workings of D.C. is at risk. We merely propose that they be given representation on the national level. That is all.

I would also remind the gentleman, Mr President, that there is no Representative, voting or not, from the capital currently in these chambers. Such a position was abolished in 1875. And I think we can all agree that local representation is not on, or near, the same level as national representation.

I think the gentleman should think long and hard on his opposition to this measure, Mr President, for I truly respect him. I am not sure that if he were taxed, he would be content to sit out the debate on those very same taxes. Neither would Mississippi.”

"Aye," Earl said sharply, scowling as Sharp voted down the bill. Thankfully Republican support should easily carry the bill— but should it not, punishments would be in order for the Dixiecrats.

Official Name: The U.S. Government Internees Reconciliation and Redress Act



Overview: This bill seeks to grant reparations and redress for the victims of internment by the U.S. Government during World War II. This bill also serves to fully recognize our Government not only failed but proactively violated the protected rights of American Citizens under the U.S. Constitution.

Sponsor: Joseph Gorski Warszawski (R-PA)
Co-Sponsors: William Lawrence Oswald Jr. (D-MA)


Section 1:
A. This bill seeks to grant reparations to Japanese Americans who had been interned by the United States government during World War II. In full recognition of the violations of the rights of American citizens by the U.S. Government.
B. This bill will grant reparations of $15,000 to individual survivors of the internment by the U.S. Government in the years during and following World War II. Furthermore, this bill will grant full refunds of burial services costs to be provided to the families of those who lost family members who died while in or after being interned in any of these camps.
C. This bill seeks to create a Committee on the Reconciliation and Mediation of U.S. Internees. This Committee will serve to analyze all cases seeking redress for loss of property by individuals and their families during the process of Internment by the U.S. Government. This Committee will assist in verifying and filing these claims.

This bill is then honorably presented to the Senate for consideration in order to at least in part begin the process of amelioration and reconciliation by our government to redress its wrongs against American citizens to improve the United States Law and is backed by Joseph Gorski Warszawski on January 7th, 1959.
