Gerrymandering, It’s How the Democrats Stay in Power

Al Ritter

A few years ago the state of Maryland was so gerrymandered by Democrats, it was uncertain if the Republican would ever have a voice in the state again. Even then Democratic Governor Martin O’Malley admitted it was an effective tool to assure Democratic rule for a long time into the future.

Under Republican Governor Larry Hogan a bi-partisan commission was formed to redistrict the state of Maryland in a more fair way. The commission worked towards that goal all to no avail.

The Maryland General Assembly voted to work in the exact opposite direction and gerrymander even farther in the beneficial direction of the democrats.

The redistricting has gotten so bad now that Kweisi Mfume past President of the NAACP is now the Congressman in District 7, a mainly rural farmland in Maryland. What exactly does a historically militant Black politician have in common with a white farming community?

Gov Larry Hogan infuriated, vetoed the bill only to have the Assembly come back and over-ride his veto.

The bi-partisan commission had a common sense approach but the liberals had quite a different idea.
