Why Am I Not Surprised That Racism is Alive in Louisiana?

I can't find too many people denouncing this. Today's Wake-up Call: JP won't sign license for interracial couples - On Deadline - USATODAY.com Jindal has called for investigation. And the ACLU and NAACP have issued statements.

Has anyone in Washington taken notice and I just can't find it? (The quip from the White House was appropriate, given that the President is biracial.) Or have they finally decided not to jump in feet first into every local story? Learning from your past mistakes is a good thing, after all.

Any bets on how long this guy will retain his Justice of the Peace license? How about before he faces a federal trial on denial of civil rights?
