Oh hooray, the Chicago politics will linger on still. Expand the crony political machine. Get more people hooked on welfare of various forms. Lawyer it up and make sure that voter ID, a simple requirement, is fought at every turn. (I wonder why some fight this anti-corruption effort so fervently?) The Alinskyites aren’t just going to go away. They want to infect all of our system with their urban machine tactics.
Big government. Big dependence. Big politicians. Big corruption. Small freedom. The Chicago way.
Again, welcome to the 3rd World.
As Democrats aim to capitalize on this year’s Republican turmoil and start building back their own decimated bench, former Attorney General Eric Holder will chair a new umbrella group focused on redistricting reform—with the aim of taking on the gerrymandering that’s left the party behind in statehouses and made winning a House majority far more difficult.
The new group, called the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, was developed in close consultation with the White House. President Barack Obama himself has now identified the group—which will coordinate campaign strategy, direct fundraising, organize ballot initiatives and put together legal challenges to state redistricting maps—as the main focus of his political activity once he leaves office.
This group is not about “taking on gerrymandering.” It’s about gerrymandering.
