Sue Till Blue: NC Democrats Plan ANOTHER Challenge of Congressional Maps, Emboldened By Court Win on State Maps

RALEIGH – When something is working, it makes sense to keep it up. That’s why it’s hard to be surprised, albeit plenty annoyed, whispers are emerging that North Carolina Democrats plan to bring another lawsuit challenging Congressional District Maps drawn by Republicans in 2017. After all, the Left’s challenge in state courts of state legislative maps on the basis of the maps being ‘partisan gerrymanders’ proved successful. So, why not challenge the congressional maps in state courts too, never mind that the Supreme Court of the United States basically laughed the notion of partisan gerrymanders and implicit demands for proportional representation out of the courtroom.

If the same flawed logic is employed by state judicial officials in a challenge of congressional maps, North Carolina could be in for a gauntlet of hurried redistricting immediately before an election. And, in keeping with the Democrats’ argument, any solution to the ‘partisan gerrymandering’ necessarily involves the legislature or the courts arbitrarily rebalancing maps in order to elect more Democrats. Which sounds curiously like redrawing maps strictly for political advantage, exactly what the Republicans are accused of doing, except for the fact the Democrats never won the majority and are using the cover of the courts for political gain.

In any case, Sue til Blue is still in full effect, it seems. It’s like de ja vu all over again.
