Let's take names and vote those fighting redistricting out of office!
In my opinion the Arizona State Legislature is correct in filing a lawsuit in federal court, against the Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission (IRC), to reclaim authority to draw U.S. House district boundaries. Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission Chair Colleen Coyle Mathis, and the finalized boundaries and maps drawn by the IRC, purposely give Democrats an unfair advantage in the election process. Other allegations range from the choice of a firm with Democratic links as mapping consultant -- to ignoring the requirements of the federal Voting Rights Act.

Accuracy,You're full of it. It is obvious that you don't have an honset bone in your body!How can you possibly say that Dems were GIVEN any advantage, at all.More like they were at a TOTAL disadvantage, and now it's only mostl slaanted in favor of Reps.Just becaise you repeat a lie doesn't make it suddenly true.Who would want the egomaniacs and mental midgets in the legislature making any important decisions?Only those, such as yourself, who obviously can't think for themselves.
The Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission (IRC) redrew the state's 30 legislative districts and carved out a ninth congressional district. But, the IRC does not have the authority to draw the state’s political boundaries, and the Legislature's filed a lawsuit in June – challenging who gets to draw congressional lines – according to the federal constitutional provision. The decision to launch the lawsuit was reached by a majority vote in both the House and Senate . . . Because the U.S. Constitution clearly defines that only elected officials, an elected body, can draw the lines.
Today is Wednesday, July 25th. June 13th was 42 days ago. Wake us Editors! Clearly you are asleep at the switch!
The county sues the city , county sues the state, state sues the USA. Its very sad that elected officals that should compromise with their counterparts to get a modified , i get some you get some, will never work again. If we could just compromise some then the said elected officials would not look like total idiots wasting the taxpayer dollars.
End of story! The plan is done and the governor needs to stay out of it because the public specifically wants that out of the politicians hands.
