Overview of this Controversy


Date Originated: July of 2014
Categories: Republican Party of Florida
A state judge in Florida ruled the states newly drawn Congressional map unconstitutional after the state conducted a “secret, organized campaign” to draw the new Congressional boundaries in the decennial redistricting process. The judge ruled that two districts, District 5 and 10, were invalid and had to be redrawn, along with any other districts that would be affected by their redrawing. The judge agreed that the Republican legislature collaborated with conservative and other right-leaning groups to draw the districts in a way that would be beneficial to the Republican party and detrimental to the Democratic party.
