Reporters' Roundtable: Washington's Missing Letter; Weiner's Disappearing District

In this week’s Forward Reporters’ Roundtable, host Josh Nathan-Kazis sits down with Jane Eisner, editor of the Forward, and staff writer Paul Berger to discuss how a famous letter from George Washington promising religious pluralism ended up in a warehouse in suburban Maryland. Then, Josh speaks with Forward Fellow Naomi Zeveloff about the redistricting efforts that could affect Anthony Weiner’s former congressional district, and the implications of Weiner’s recent resignation. Finally, Gabrielle Birkner joins the conversation, and reveals that we might be mispronouncing the disgraced congressman’s last name.
