Wentworth: redistricting to be fair to the Dems

Hey, Senator Wentworth! We don’t want a balanced consensus on the maps — we want Republican maps.(And we want Dr. Donna Campbell for Senate District 25.)

We don’t want activist judges, but neither are we willing to give up the right to draw our electoral maps just because it’s hard. We want Conservative Legislators, preferably Conservative, pro-life, pro-family Republican legislators – That’s why we sent 100 to the House this year, and won a 101st when he saw the light.

Earl Jeffrey has a column in the San Antonio Express News on Dec.6 th, begging us to cross the aisle and “all just get along:”

In addition to separating communities of interest, gerrymandering protects incumbents. Protected incumbencies discourage challengers, so voters’ choices are limited to a “token” challenger or to no choice at all.

Since both political parties have proven conclusively that they are unable to resist the gerrymandering urge, Senate Bill 22 would have created an independent, bipartisan citizens’ redistricting commission that I believe would bring more of a sense of balance and a semblance of fairness to redistricting.

via Federal judges redraw Texas redistricting maps – San Antonio Express-News.
