I'm holding out hope. The Court deciding the redistricting is the same one that has repeatedly ruled the GOP redistricting plans illegal.
Already in TB area some Republican incumbents are filing for other offices, as they see the writing on the wall in their redrawn districts.

You are accusing a Dem Congressperson of gerrymandering Florida for the Republicans. L. Coyote Sep 2015 #37
That's exactly what happened. HooptieWagon Sep 2015 #38
No, that's just what you say happened. L. Coyote Sep 2015 #45
Links are right there in my post. HooptieWagon Sep 2015 #50
The Rs did the gerrymandering, and now post facto you want to blame a Dem. That's absurd and wrong. L. Coyote Sep 2015 #53
And she colloberated with the Rs. HooptieWagon Sep 2015 #55
So, now you are admitting you were wrong. Well, keep backtracking until you are right. L. Coyote Sep 2015 #61
WTF? I haven't back-tracked one bit. HooptieWagon Sep 2015 #64

I'm afraid this is correct. I suspect it goes on elsewhere as well. Eleanors38 Sep 2015 #60
You know what they say about opinions and suspicions. L. Coyote Sep 2015 #62
Well, don't fall in one. Eleanors38 Sep 2015 #66

Why do you not want to talk about the racial issue here? CreekDog Sep 2015 #46
What the hell are you talking about? HooptieWagon Sep 2015 #47
You blame Dems Reps in racially aggregated gerrymandered districts. That's just ludicrous. L. Coyote Sep 2015 #48
She participated in the gerrymandering. HooptieWagon Sep 2015 #49
You are conflating two distinct issues. Don't blame Dems for the gerrymandering by the Rs. L. Coyote Sep 2015 #52
I'll blame Dems who colloberated with Rs in gerrymandering. HooptieWagon Sep 2015 #57
You blaming someone is a lot different than the facts you falsely assert. Stick to facts instead of L. Coyote Sep 2015 #63
