The Senate Will Redraw Its Map: Sometimes the Truth is Obvious

Source: Scott Paine
7/29/15
 
You may recall, dear reader, that the Senate’s first cut at redistricting after the 2010 census was in obvious violation of Florida’s Fair Districts requirements. Just the numbering of the districts (which systematically granted to certain incumbents the privilege of running for three consecutive Senate terms rather than two, and the potential to serve a total of 10 years, rather than the eight years state term limits were designed to enforce) made it obvious that the maps were drawn (and numbered) to benefit those incumbents and a certain political party.
 
The second cut passed initial review. But it has become the subject of a lawsuit brought by a coalition of groups, led by the League of Women Voters, on the grounds that the map still privileges certain partisan and incumbent interests in violation of the state constitution.
 
The trial on the merits of these allegations was scheduled for late September of this year. Given the long and winding process we have witnessed for the suit against the way the congressional districts were drawn, one could have anticipated that, even if the petitioners prevailed, we might not have seen new districts until shortly before the next census.
