Former President Barack Obama and former Attorney General Eric Holder have hated hard on Republican states for gerrymandering, but they hypocritically ignore Democrat-controlled states that do the exact same thing.
“Obama criticized Alabama’s congressional map and praised Holder’s National Democratic Redistricting Committee for ‘fighting so hard to make sure people everywhere have an equal opportunity to choose their representatives,'” reports Fox News.
“Holder, in an appearance on MSNBC this month, advocated for ‘fair line drawing’ and said Republicans ‘gamed’ the system in the redistricting after the 2010 census. He has also attacked red states for gerrymandering for months,” reported Fox News.
When Democrat-led states do exactly the same thing…crickets from Obama and Holder.
“Maryland faces multiple lawsuits over the congressional map its legislature passed. The map threatens to gerrymander the state’s last remaining Republican congressman out of his seat,” reported Fox News.
“The Illinois congressional map incudes several districts that snake narrowly through Chicago neighborhoods and suburbs before spreading out into the nearby suburban and rural areas, reducing the chance that any of those areas could elect a Republican,” Fox News reported.
“Another district starts on the western edge of the state across the river from St. Louis, Mo., and cuts almost all the way across the state to the Indiana state line in the shape of an apostrophe,” according to Fox News.
