U.S. AG Merrick Garland Redistricting In Democrat-Run Illinois While Announcing Lawsuit Against Texas For Allegedly Violating Voting Rights Act

The Department of Justice sued Texas over new redistricting maps Monday, saying the plans discriminate against voters in the state’s booming Latino and Black populations. The lawsuit, filed in the Western District of Texas, claims the state violates part of the Voting Rights Act. The lawsuit notes that the vast majority of Texas’ population growth over the past decade came from Black, Latino and Asian people, but the new maps that state Republicans drew doesn’t give any of these communities new opportunities to choose their own representatives.

Amazing that Garland, a guy who back in the day was thisclose to becoming a Supreme Court justice, would allow Joe Biden to play him this way.
