Dems Ask Federal Court to Ignore the Law, Rescue NY Gerrymander

(John RansomHeadline USA) The Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee has asked federal courts to intercede in a decision that rejected a gerrymandered map prohibited under the New York Constitution.

The legal maneuver is being called “unusual” as it’s being funded by the DCCC, and is asking the federal courts to force New York to use the gerrymandered maps that the Democrat legislature created, and were subsequently rejected by the Democrat-controlled New York Supreme Court, according to the New York Times.

The New York courts had ordered the elections to be held in August, pending the creation of  new maps by a special master who is appointed to follow a 2014 constitutional amendment approved by voters that prevented partisan gerrymandering.

“New York’s decision to wait several more weeks before adopting a new congressional plan as its federally mandated June 28 primary rapidly approaches is untenable,” said lawyers from the Elias Law Group, a leading Democrat lawfare firm, according to the Buffalo News.

“The state has an obligation to redistrict in a timely manner. Since it has failed to do so, this court must act,” added the attorneys for the DCCC.

In what looks like a perfectly timed decision, today the Washington Post came out with a study that says that state judges tend to uphold the maps created by their own party when given the opportunity through litigation, “especially Republican judges.”

“When a Republican-majority plan is challenged, a Republican judge has a 20 percent greater likelihood of supporting that plan than a Democratic judge,” noted the Washington Post, which is owned by billionaire plutocrat, Jeff Bezos.

The map that the DCC is arguing in favor of creates a 22 to 4 majority for Democrats in congressional districts, versus today’s map which has a 19 to 8 majority for the Democrats.

Twenty-two seats out of 26 argues for an 85% majority for Democrats, whereas Joe Biden picked up 61% of the vote in New York.
