The District of Columbia House Voting Rights Act of 2007

Last week, the House of Representatives passed the "District of Columbia House Voting Rights Act of 2007." Among other things, it would grant the District a voting representative in the House.

The proposed legislation is so obviously unconstitutional (see here and here) that it's incomprehensible to me that anyone could think otherwise. Are there serious (or even semi-serious) scholars who contend the legislation is constitutional? If so, who are they? And what do they cite?
