“DOJ’s accusations of racial discrimination are baseless. In 2011, both houses of the Texas Legislature were controlled by large Republican majorities, and their redistricting decisions were designed to increase the Republican Party’s electoral prospects at the expense of the Democrats. It is perfectly constitutional for a Republican-controlled legislature to make partisan districting decisions, even if there are incidental effects on minority voters who support Democratic candidates.”
That is not a hyperbolic media induced passage, but the actual response from Texas to the Court regarding supposed voter suppression.
They want a one-party Texas.
Long Live the People’s Republic of Texas.
