|In 1990, George H.W. Bush vetoed a civil rights bill requiring employers to show a 'business necessity' to screening out women or minority applicants, arguing that it would impose quotas for hiring minorities. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) voted to sustain Bush's veto - a veto that survived by only one vote in the Senate. McCain is now unapologetic for his vote...repeating the false argument that it would have led to quotas.|
