New York Court Sides With Republicans In Redistricting Case In Major Blow For Democrats

Democrats pretty much own the state of New York politically, mostly because of New York City.

Knowing that they are likely going to get creamed in the 2022 midterms, they redrew district maps in the state, thinking it would give them an advantage.

Yet New York’s highest court just stepped in and told them that they can’t do that.

This is a massive loss for the Democrats.

New York’s highest court threw out the state’s redistricting maps, dealing a massive blow to Democrats for the 2022 midterm election cycle.

The New York State Court of Appeals sided with lower courts in its determination that the three maps were unconstitutionally gerrymandered and ordered the adoption of a neutral plan to be crafted by a special master.

The maps were “procedurally unconstitutional, and the congressional map is also substantively unconstitutional as drawn with impermissible partisan purpose,” the court said. “We are confident that, in consultation with the Board of Elections, Supreme Court can swiftly develop a schedule to facilitate an August primary election, allowing time for the adoption of new constitutional maps.”

The Democratic-controlled legislature’s decision to draw its own maps when the New York State Independent Redistricting Commission failed to reach a consensus was unconstitutional, petitioners successfully argued.

Lots of people are justifiably surprised that the court sided with Republicans on this.

A reckoning is coming in November.
