Very interesting case, as I believe that only Florida, out of all states, has a law that says it is illegal to gerrymander districts for partisan advantage. This law was written into the Florida Constitution in 2010. In a dissent from the majority, one justice says that the Florida Constitution violates..... The Florida Constitution. Huh?!?!TALLAHASSEE The state Supreme Court ruled Friday that legislators and their staffs must testify in a case that accuses Republicans of redrawing political boundaries for partisan advantage in violation of the state Constitution.
The 5-2 decision means that the League of Women Voters, Common Cause and others can force Republican senators and key staff members to testify under oath about their motives in drawing districts. The plaintiffs claim emails show that the GOP plotted with party officials and political consultants for partisan advantage in the 2012 remapping of Senate and congressional districts.
Only Florida, folks. Only Florida. How about we take a hacksaw, cut it off from the rest of the USA, and float it over to Cuba as a gift to Castro..... Wait, Castro doesn't want Florida either. LOL.
