    The commies will never give-up on stealing an election, Texas is the big prize and these commies are set to steal it.

    Since when is proving who you are "voter suppression"?

    Par the course for these communists running this government so far...

    1) Thousands of barrels of oil pumping into the Gulf, sue Arizona.

    2) George Zimmerman found 'not guilty' by a jury of his peers, consider federal charges against him,

    3) Hundreds being killed by chemical warfare in Syria, sue Texas.

    Yep, everything in the OA is going along as usual.

    Obama has to invent a new reason not to talk about all of his failures and scandals.

    I think this might have something to do with the Supreme Court recently striking down part of the Voting Rights Act.

    I'm sure it does, but why even waste the money and time on a losing lawsuit?

    It's not necessarily a losing argument. Section 4 of the VRA being struck down means that for DOJ to use pre-clearance they have to convince a court that the jurisdiction has a history of past intentional voter discrimination so that the court can order pre-clearance.

    Texas's last redistricting had a finding that it was intentionally racially discriminatory, so DOJ is seeking pre-clearance of Texas election law changes on that basis, along with allegedly intentional discrimination in the ID requirement and their new redistricting (seeking it under the so-called "bail in" preclearance under Section 3 of the VRA).

    They are also making a facial challenge to the ID law under VRA Section 2, the 14th and the 15th Amendment alleging that it is intentionally discriminatory on the basis of race. The voter ID complaint is available here if you want to read it: http://www.justice.gov/iso/opa/resources/7472013822155117860058.pdf

    Florida has a history of redistricting that was intentionally racially discriminatory and look what Floridians got:

    Why else would "her" district look like this?

    Where's the DOJ on this?

    Has any Administration in our history ever sued as many states as has the Obama Administration? The guy is just ruthless in his relentless efforts to intimidate and bully others to force his way on everyone.

    You mean blacks voting for blacks because they're black isn't racist, but whites not voting black is? :wink:

    Is the conservative bunch on this board really this stupid or just really naïve?

    If conservatives are busy trying to violate the constitution & laws of this country everyday what is the administration supposed to do?

    The government suing a state happens all of the time....


    Get to know something about the country you live in. :roll:

    The old Florida 3rd (it's largely now the Florida 5th following 2012 redistricting) was actually drawn to resolve a prior VRA challenge to Florida's redistricting. It's a so-called "majority-minority district" that was drawn because of concerns that Florida's redistricting was diluting the African-American vote by spreading them amongst numerous districts to render them politically powerless when it was possible to draw a district that empowered African-Americans to elect a candidate of their choosing. It was actually somewhat popular both in the black community and with FL's Republican Party because it both created a majority-minority district and made the surrounding districts safer GOP seats.

    Last week he got a new puppy. This week he's on a bus tour. Anyone want to guess what next week's distraction is? I bet he and Michelle attend the wedding of one of his staffers...Bruce will be marrying Phillip. How sweet. And the media, especially Chris Mathews, will get all tingly.

    Well to the degree that something designed to remediate racial discrimination, by definition, has to have a racial element, sure.

    Good luck convincing a court that trying to settle your way out of a VRA Section 2 dilution / "one person, one vote" suit, particularly when you do it by adopting a district map nearly identical to that drawn by the three-judge panel of the NDFla. that was initially hearing the case, is a history of intentional voter discrimination though.

    Correcting the lines of an arguably racially discriminatory redistricting plan without looking at the racial makeup of districts would certainly be a difficult task (and also a patently absurd idea). If the claim is that African Americans have been divided into a ton of districts thereby diluting their voting power, how exactly can you correct that without being able to look at the number of African Americans in a district?

    Simple response when you don't have a legitimate answer?
