    This is a big story. A REAL big story, and one with some far-reaching implications:


    TALLAHASSEE: Judge throws out Florida's congressional map - Florida - MiamiHerald.com




    Judge invalidates two Florida congressional districts | Tampa Bay Times



    Florida's electoral map in flux after court ruling | Reuters



    A Florida judge just voided the state?s congressional districts. Here?s what you need to know. - The Washington Post

    The WAPO article links to the judge's ruling, but I could not get the link to work:

    Navigator

    The site may have gotten overloaded. I will update as soon as possible.


    An important detail: this ruling has no effect on the 2014 mid-terms, but it will have an effect on the 2016 elections.



    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    And a personal note, on this thread over electioneering, a very large OP that covers the first five postings:

    http://www.usmessageboard.com/clean-debate-zone/333884-electioneering.html#post8424470

    I gave recommendations for how to do fair and impartial redistricting in all 50 states.

    When you read what is happening in Florida (and could well happen in other states), I think that the argument I made has more and more merit with time.

    Also, I want to make a specific note that in terms of Gerrymandering, the Democratic Party is often every bit as guilty as the Republican Party. This is a phenomenon that absolutely must stop.

    ah yes, you must find him a rock star? gives you thrills, orgasams?

    how about the supreme court? When did we ALLOW any judge to make policy, override the will of the voters, etc in this country?

    and why doesn't it bother you?

    Do you actually ever read for content, Stephanie?

    No one is a rock star for me.

    This is news.

    Learn to discern, like adults do. The information is all there in the OP.
    And you might note the disclaimer at the end.

    naaa, I don't take anything from you as "adult"
    but answer my questions? why are you in favor of allowing lowly judges to overturn the will of the people? where is that in their POWERS?

    Perhaps the map down in Miami needs to be looked at as well then.............

    I'd agree area 5 looks retarded.

    What those on the partisan right fail to understand that the issue is not gerrymandering per se, but the fact that gerrymandering in Florida violates the state's constitution.

    What makes this judge "lowly"?

    The ruling is within his powers as a judge. It's the law of the land.

    Why are Righties like you so against the law of the land?

    The PEOPLE did not decide on new congressional districts. A political team, in this case, a GOP team, did.

    Really, Stephanie, learn to read for content. It would make your life so much easier.
