Palazzo opposes naming post office after Maya Angelou

WASHINGTON – Rep. Steven Palazzo was one of nine Republicans Tuesday to vote against naming a post office after the late author, poet and civil rights activist Maya Angelou.

“He just felt that it was too controversial,’’ said Jill Duckworth, a spokeswoman for Palazzo.

The House voted 371 to 9, with one voting present, to pass a measure naming a post office in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, the “Maya Angelou Memorial Post Office.”
