The Philadelpia Inquirer's blog, The Source, reports that Sonya Toler, executive director of the Governor's Advisory Committee on African American Affairs of Pennsylvania, has written the Civil Rights Division of the Dept. of Justice to express support for an investigation of "the incident" at the swim club. She notes the committee's "view that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is implicated." The letter also notes that an investigation by the Pennsylvania Human Relations Committee is already underway. For Ms. Toler's letter, go here.
