Judges strike down North Carolina GOP-drawn voting map

Federal judges determined that North Carolina's congressional district map gave the Republican Party an advantage for most seats and ordered the map to be redrawn immediately.

LOL Tick Tock, Tick Tock

It's called gerrymandering, and it's been going on since at least 1812 when the phrase was coined by the Boston Gazette.

I agree the ability for anybody of any political affiliation to do this is dead wrong. Glad to see it was shot down. I'm just calling bullshit on your reference to the Trump Administration is all.

Do Right, Be Right. :)

The first response to this link is further proof stupid people don't read. This is from the article link I posted in the first post.

January 10, 2018 Raleigh, N.C.—Federal judges have ruled that North Carolina's congressional district map drawn by legislative Republicans is illegally gerrymandered because of excessive partisanship that gave the GOP a rock-solid advantage for most seats and must quickly be redone.

The ruling late Tuesday marks the second time this decade that the GOP's congressional boundaries in the state have been thrown out by a three-judge panel. In 2016, another panel tossed out two majority black congressional districts initially drawn in 2011, saying there was no justification for using race as the predominant factor in forming them. The redrawn map was the basis for a new round of lawsuits.

The latest lawsuit – filed by election advocacy groups and Democrats – said the replacement for the racial gerrymander also contained unlawful partisan gerrymanders. Those who sued argued that Republican legislators went too far when they followed criteria designed to retain the party's 10 to 3 majority in the state delegation.
