Even The SC Can't Stomach Republican Gerrymandering

Even the Supreme Court can see that Republicans create spaghetti districts to place blacks in a couple of large districts while creating many small Red districts. Republicans are afraid to let the people decide their representation fairly.

Supreme Court Rejects GOP Request To Delay New District Map (Virginia)

Source: ASSOCIATED PRESS

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- The U.S. Supreme Court has denied a request from Virginia's congressional Republicans to put a new congressional map on hold and allow the 2016 elections to proceed under the old boundaries.

The high court issued its denial Monday.


Republicans are also asking the court to reverse a decision by a three-judge panel that said lawmakers in 2012 illegally packed too many black voters into the 3rd Congressional District. The court is set to hear arguments March 21.

The new map could help Democrats win the 4th Congressional District, represented by Republican Rep. Randy Forbes.

Camelot and another misleading and fabricated headline. A puzzle: Can anyone find Camelot's headline in the court' one-line statement:
