People Not Politicians is a progressive group trying circumvent Constitutional redistricting power that resides in the majority party of a state (as upheld by SCOTUS.) But never mind the “Supremes,” PNP is pushing state lawsuits to create an “independent” (ha!) citizen’s commission to determine redistricting. Their first lawsuit was shot down by the Oklahoma Supreme Court, so they now going for round two. Just the beginning of this movement, so stay tuned.
If you sometimes are befuddled by the intersection of the census, redistricting and reapportionment—what each means, how they all talk to each other—don’t feel bad; it is confusing. This article uses Pennsylvania as a demonstration of what census numbers mean for redistricting (“how areas will be divided into districts based on the number of seats a state has”) and reapportionment (“the process of deciding how many seats a state will have in the House of Representatives based on changes in population.”) Things that don’t need explanation: census collection will be infiltrated by liberal activists looking to skew Congressional districts in their favor.
Apply to register to vote in Texas and your application needs to have your original signature. Sounds reasonable? Not according to Democrats. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee have both sued the state claiming this is just downright unfair. Eric Holder, complaining bitterly about “gerrymandering” when Republicans do it, is floating $10 million in the state to make sure redistricting turns out in the Democrats’ favor. We have to wonder — how in the world do they get away with this stuff? Let’s not let them.
We always find it instructive to read what the pro-vote corruption liberal cohort is thinking and what they see as the best path to fighting the integrity of the vote (i.e. negating yours.) In this article from a left-leaning news site, the title alone shows their hand. Democrats are working hard to persuade American voters that redistricting is an evil plot to steal votes rather than a Constitutional provision and a requirement for states to ensure proper Congressional apportionment. Even more telling, former President Obama and former AG Eric Holder have teamed up on an effort to fight fictional Republican “voter suppression.” As noted in this article, their new project is called “All on the Line.” Any questions?
