U. S. Supreme Court To Hear Texas Redistricting Case
Top court to review Texas redistricting plan
The U.S. Supreme Court said on Monday that it would decide a challenge by Democrats and minority groups to the controversial 2003 Republican-supported congressional redistricting plan in Texas.
The justices agreed to review a ruling by a federal three-judge panel that upheld the bitterly contested map, which had been strongly supported by U.S. Rep. Tom DeLay of Texas.
One giant step...Well if they uphold it nothing changes. And if they don't does anything change either? Will they put all the Democrats back in Congress as a penalty? I don't think so. Either way the mission was accomplished, the Republicans got rid of almost every incumbent Democrat they targeted (Chet Edwards and Lloyd Doggett were the exceptions). Who will pay for this? Maybe a few individual Republicans but not the Republican Party as a whole. There is really no way to pay for the wrong that was done.
