Sneaky, Slimy Gerrymanders

During the President’s inauguration, Senate Republicans pushed through a surprise redistricting bill and wrote out a Democratic district. The bill narrowly passed because they held the vote while there weren’t enough Democrats on the floor to defeat it.

As DPVA Chair Charniele Herring urges us:

Knowing that they had no chance to pass this legislation by following the rules, Senate Republicans went around protocol to sneak in a re-redistricting vote.

This is outrageous, and it must be stopped. Please join me in calling on Governor McDonnell to veto this overt gerrymandering.
