Redistricting plan map tomorrow - Kooch & Sutton lose districts
http://www.cleveland.com/open/index.ssf/2011/09/new_rem...

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Democrats will lose two congressional seats in Northeast Ohio under a remapping plan that will be introduced in Ohio's legislature this week. But they will gain a new seat in Columbus that's being designed to shift Republicans who now represent the city into safer suburban seats.

Republican and Democratic sources say that in Northeast Ohio, the plan will shift Copley Township Democrat Betty Sutton into a largely Republican district that's being constructed to favor the re-election of freshman GOP Rep. Jim Renacci of Wadsworth.

The western Cuyahoga County power base of Cleveland Democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich will become part of a district that snakes along Lake Erie from Toledo and is designed to favor the re-election of longtime Toledo Democratic Rep. Marcy Kaptur.

1. Cleveland's largest newspaper objects to Kucinich's plan to impeach Cheney
But in republo-press-logic, impeaching President Clinton for having sex was fine.
