       Florida Judge:


    Rules State GOP’s Redistricting Was Illegal



    A Florida judge ruled late Thursday that the state Republican party illegally redrew the state’s districts and ordered both the fifth and the tenth districts to be redrawn (which would obviously affect neighboring districts).


    According to The New York Times, Judge Terry Lewis declared that the state Republican party “made a mockery” of the law and said, “Republican political consultants or operatives did, in fact, conspire to manipulate and influence the redistricting process.”


    Florida passed two constitutional amendments in 2010 to fix redistricting laws, but during the trial “it turned out that legislative leaders destroyed many documents relevant to the process.”

    The Republicans miss opportunities to find a moral center over and over gain. Losers.  


    Yet I am left wondering, if it were the Democrats, would progressives and the press just say no story here?

    The shape of the Massachusetts Congressional districts look awful strange, too. Not that Republicans have much of a chance to begin with, but the shape of the districts were made to deliberately hurt any Republicans's chances...since Democrats control the State Government, that is what they get to do...unless we want judges in every state to create the districts...
