"We wanted to make the district more compact."
Horseshit, Mr. Cruz.

U.S. District Judge Patrick Higginbotham, the presiding judge, asked (OAG attorney Ted) Cruz why the state map called for eliminating Doggett's political base.

Cruz said the state was trying to make the districts more compact. Doggett's current district runs from Austin to the Mexican border.

Cruz also said the maps submitted by Democratic and Latino groups, which were submitting their arguments later Thursday, tried to create too many Hispanic districts and gain a political edge.

The federal panel can select one of the maps submitted by the parties in the case or draw their own voting lines to fix the district in question.

It was unclear when the three-judge panel may issue a decision, but Texas elections officials say a ruling by Monday is necessary for changes to go into effect for the Nov. 7 election.

Why do these Republican gangsters all look the same?

1. Horseshit, indeed
Don't piss on our shoes and tell us it's raining Cruz-shit. They really, really hate Lloyd Doggett. They are obsessed with getting rid of him. No way in hell, we're going to let that happen. In fact we're going to put in 15 more just like him and take back the House this fall.

Abbott is a horse's ass.
