Virginia Kills Surprise Redistricting Plan

Virginia Kills Surprise Redistricting Plan

The Virginia Speaker of the House William Howell (R) "has ruled that the surprise changes that the Senate made to redistricting legislation are out of order, dealing a blow to GOP hopes to redraw districts," the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports.

"Senate Republicans pushed through the plan on a 20-19 party-line vote on a day when Democrats were down one member because Sen. Henry Marsh III (D) attended inauguration ceremonies for President Barack Obama in Washington on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. "

1. Republicans were taking

a lot of heat for that trick.

I'm glad Howell did the right thing.

3. Was Howell being noble

or was that nobility encumbered and encouraged, by his own party being caught doing something slimey and low and underhanded?

9. There was a very real possibility of serious backlash

Republicans in PA, MI, WI and OH should take note.
