It's about time, he's been unchecked for wayyyyyy too long and politics in America have suffered for it.
You gotta wonder...
Who re-elects a guy who's proven himself to be an extortionist with a penchant for dirty politics, bribery and corruption?
Is there some district in Texas that's all THAT jaded? Is there perhaps a district made up entirely of his family?
That's the result of the redistricting process for you. It should be revamped to be less partisan. Safe districts tend to be extremist in their politics.
Unfortunately, the opposite happened in Texas due directly to DeLay's efforts. It's a big part of the reason for the Republican dominance in the house.
As far as I'm concerned districts should fall along existing lines. Period.
Reps: County by county.
Senators: # of counties to ballance population VERY ROUGHLY following geographic lines. Eg: NorCal Vs. SoCal with the line running between counties from about Morro Bay East.
Problem: some counties would have to be divided because they exceed the population allotment for a single representative.
So you go down a unit. My point was that I feel that districts should follow existing juristictions. Screw this special districts for special things crap. Existing juristictional lines are used for everything else. The Congress needs to get over itself.
For anyone who thinks this is partisan politics, his opposition is half dem half repub. Doesn't matter which side you land on, you need better when it comes to ethics if you are a leader in this country. In an increasingly information filled world, no more profiting from your position of power without the likely chance you will get caught.
I suppose you are learning just who Peg Pinard and Abel Moldanado are, aren't you?
Not me, they're locals in this area, but due to the lovely redistricting snake that's been drawn we're sharing an assembly district. Although oddly enough it is a highly competitive race, with only a slight edge for the Dems in numbers, but an equally slight edge for Reps in likely voters. Lots of money being spent too, what with introducing the candidates to you guys in 3 pretty pricey media markets.
Did anyone catch DeLay's spin performance today? He claims to have been "vindicated" by the Ethics Committee. I half expected him to say, "Look Ma, no leg irons!"
Just like Bush/Cheney have been 'vindicated' by the Duelfer report...
