First, the headline is inaccurate. They are NOT colleagues. Rep. Janet Adkins is in the Fl House, Rep. Corrine Brown is in the US House.
Secondly, Rep. Brown colloberated with Fl GOP in gerrymandering her district in order to carve herself out a safe seat. Her hands are not clean, it's the most gerrymandered US Congresssional District in Florida. As a result, it gave safe seats to GOP in neighboring Districts that otherwise would be more competitive. Rep Brown was self-serving, not trying to make FL's districts more fair to Democrats.
