Editors Note – I guess no one covers planes landing safely, but for the unhinged madness that the redistricting fight caused, barely a mention was made in the mainstream media yesterday that Mississippi’s redistricting was upheld at the US Supreme Court yesterday.
The NAACP had asked for that election to be set aside and special elections to be held under a court-ordered plan. It said that using the old maps violated the one-person, one-vote principle by diluting African-American voting strength.
Courts affirmed a ruling that allowed state lawmakers to run in their old districts that year.
The justices, without comment, upheld the lower court rulings.
