Texas AG: "not so"
The Tyler Morning Telegraph reports,
The Texas Attorney General's office responded Tuesday to lawsuits filed by Democrats in an East Texas court contesting recently revised congressional voting lines.
In separate answers to two complaints filed, representatives from the office denied allegations made by the plaintiffs and provided little elaboration.
The suits have been consolidated into one case and a hearing is scheduled for Monday in Marshall.
Both complaints make allegations that the voting districts drawn by Republicans harm minority representation and violate the Voting Rights Act.
I hope my friends who attend the hearing will email me their first-hand reports of the doin's.
