    Re: Nation's only current African-American Senator not invited to MLK anniversary event

    The Senate’s only black lawmaker wasn’t invited to speak at Wednesday’s 50th anniversary March on Washington, because Tim Scott’s office declined an invitation to attend the ceremony as a spectator, according to a source connected to the event.

    I noticed that we failed to mention that Scott was invited to the ceremony as a spectator. Was there a reason for that?

    “Much of the speaking program was created based on those who were able to confirm availability to attend the event, and thus were able to speak at the event,” the source explained.

    Boehner participated in a July congressional ceremony in the Capitol to mark the anniversary, and Cantor participated in a pilgrimage earlier in the year to Selma, Alabama, with civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis. Cantor’s office says they only received an invitation 12 days ago, and his calendar was already full.

    The Rebublican invitations came out late, after most of them had already been scheduled for other events. Probably just an accident of course.
