    It’s funny but there was no problem when the Democrats were in charge and drawing out all sorts of little strange districts.

    I laughed when I read the people who were part of the lawsuit. Most of the people of the first lawsuits
    were defeated Democrats who want their old districts returned to the party of the last one hundred plus years.Come on Margaret and Bobby, you lost and besides that you are sore losers. They want redistricting bottle necked in court system long enough to return to the old districts for the next election so they can regain power. I can not understand why the Democrats and defeated individuals like Miss Margaret want to sue all the time. This is a fight for power for the life of the Democrat Party of North Carolina.The League of Woman Voters of NC are now in the arms of the Democrat Party of North Carolina.

    Actually — you guys need to get up to speed. Many of the parties challenging the gerrymandered districts have long been going after the Dems too.

    Jimmy, remember the fight over Mel Watts’ district that meanders down I-85?

    I’m more familiar with the two carved out for Brad Miller and David Price.
