In hopes of retaining her narrow majority past the 2022 midterm election, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., recently funneled $300,000 to a group that uses gerrymandering tactics to make congressional districts more favorable to Democrats—even though Pelosi has gone on record publicly denouncing the practice.
With the radical Left’s stranglehold on power well underway, one of the biggest obstacles to securing permanent majorities is the deplorable voters in flyover battleground states, who could help Republicans retake the House, as they did during the Obama administration.
Democrats have spared no expense to block these voters from having their say, thereby foiling the ruling elites’ master plan to implement a new-world order.
Led by former Attorney General Eric Holder‘s National Democratic Redistricting Committee, powerful leftists hoped they could pump money into state and local elections last year to flip several statehouses in advance of the decennial redistricting process.
Instead, some Democrat legislatures wound up flipping during the 2020 election, while Republicans are believed to have retained most—if not all—of those that were targeted by Holder.
Their political options narrowing, the NDRC is now likely to fall back on its “sue till blue” strategy of circumventing the legislatures and having activist, liberal judges force the GOP-led states to redraw their maps.
Holder’s group faced a legal setback when the US Supreme Court ruled in 2019 that it was not within its purview to consider cases of partisan gerrymandering, but instead, the court simply kicked the issue back to the state level.
That means Democrats must hire legions of expensive lawyers to press their cases—and based on recent filings, they will get major financial help from Pelosi’s PAC to the Future, which gave two separate donations of $100,000 and $200,000 late last year.
According to the Washington Free Beacon, the PAC, overseen by Pelosi’s husband, Paul, is “the only political committee linked to a politician that has donated to Holder’s group in the past two years.”
Pelosi is also reported to have been one of the charter organizers of the NDRC, which began after a group of moneyed political power-brokers met during the 2016 Democratic National Convention.
But ironically, it wasn’t long ago that Pelosi denounced partisan gerrymandering, warning that it could “compromise the integrity of our democracy.”
Holder and others have coyly claimed that their efforts to flip districts to their advantage have nothing to do with the type of gerrymandering that they accuse their opponents of attempting.
“We’re not here to gerrymander for Democrats,” Holder claimed in 2019. “I just want to have a fair process—and I’m confident that if we have a fair process, Republicans, conservatives, will not do as well as progressives, as Democrats, in a fair fight.”
But former Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, the public face of the National Republican Redistricting Trust, which seeks to counter Holder’s efforts, exposed the group’s true intentions by publishing the NDRC’s own IRS filings.
If anyone tells you that @EricHolder is “fighting against gerrymandering” and for “fair maps,” just look at the form his organization filed with the IRS. The truth: their mission is to “FAVORABLY POSITION DEMOCRATS FOR THE REDISTRICTING PROCESS.” pic.twitter.com/1f6J2SnIlX
