FL Redistricting Lawsuit Heads To Trial

The truth behind the 2012 redistricting process, in which former Congressman Allen West was shafted, and forced to run in another congressional district, maybe uncovered, as a lawsuit about possible shenanigans into drawing of the districts heads to trial.

The League of Women’s Voters is accusing Republicans rigging the maps, as well as pointing the finger at Democrats for conspiring with them.

The Deal:

It was reported that a deal between Dems and Reps was struck to redistrict Allen West out of office. In the deal, Reps and Dems would retain their existing party-leaning seats, and Dems would not challenge Republicans, as long as West’s district was made vulnerable.
