“Attorney at War”Alton H. Maddox Jr.: A Reality Check From the Frontlines
Midterm elections upon us, the political tempo has quickened, and with it claims and counterclaims about who did or can do what to improve the quality of life for all Americans. With all 435 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and 33 U.S. Senate seats up for grabs, and contests for 46 state and four territorial legislatures, 36 governorships and 28 key mayoral slots, it’s a bruising battle between the two dominant parties for control. Now, their fortunes are tied to constituencies routinely ignored.
“Attorney at War” Alton H. Maddox Jr., who for decades has been a stalwart defender of the defenseless, does a reality check from the frontlines, where political claims and promises have little or no relationship to the raw truth of everyday life for the vast majority.
