Trump Sees Danger For GOP In New Court-Imposed District Maps

Attack On Pennsylvania Supreme Court Is An Attack On The Rule Of Law Itself Trump Sees Danger For GOP In New Court-Imposed District Maps
Bennie Garza | 26 February, 2018, 05:21

The 2011 map is widely considered among the nation's most gerrymandered, a mélange of jagged lines and odd shapes that include one likened to the cartoon character Goofy kicking Donald Duck.

The brief in opposition is due February 27 and a preliminary injunction hearing is scheduled for March 9.

The legal scramble comes on the eve of a very busy time for congressional candidates hoping to get on the May 15 primary ballot.

"The Pennsylvania Supreme Court conspicuously seized the redistricting process and prevented any meaningful ability for the Legislature to enact a remedial map to ensure a court drawn map", lawyers for Scarnati and Turzai wrote.

The Supreme Court this month denied a request from Pennsylvania Republicans to stop the state's highest court from requiring lawmakers to redraw the map of the state's 18 House districts.

Republicans contend the state Supreme Court didn't have the authority to invalidate the 6-year-old map and didn't give lawmakers enough time to develop one to replace it.

This gross overstep of power prompted a group of eight state representatives to file a lawsuit Thursday that will likely see the case brought before the supreme court.

Conner and Jordan were chosen for the federal bench by President George W. Bush, while Simandle was nominated by President George H.W. Bush. Will the state Supreme Court be able to rule on a lawsuit that the new map is unconstitutional? Wolf and other parties were given until noon Monday to weigh in.

The Republicans' lawsuit asks federal judges to prevent the use of a court-ordered map of congressional districts in this year's elections. Now, it is becoming the anchor for the Democratic effort to win back the majority in the November midterm elections.

When the registered voters of Pennsylvania allow this to happen without speaking out, they are setting our commonwealth up for disaster.

A four-seat pickup, or more, from Pennsylvania would put Democrats well on their way to the 24 seats they need to win the majority. Six congressional seats are or will be vacant in Pennsylvania, an unusually large number that has helped draw a slew of would-be candidates.
