Bob Dole shocked many observers this year when he and his handlers decided to make his war wounds and permanent disability part of his presidential campaign. And Dole has raised the issue of disability rights again and again, taking credit for his work on the historic Americans with Disabilities Act and telling voters about his own foundation that helps people with disabilities. Justin Dart is a trustee on the board of the Dole Foundation. He’s a lifelong Republican and a principal architect of the A.D.A. who campaigned for both Ronald Reagan and George Bush and served 5 presidential appointments in their administrations. Dart even paid for wheelchair ramp to the front door of Republican National Committee. Although Dart has supported Bob Dole in every campaign since 1988, in 1996 he’s backing Bill Clinton. In a recent press conference with other disability right activists, Justin Dart explained why. (7:00)
