Missouri's Congressional Redistricting Plan Becomes Law

The Missouri Legislature's redrawing of US Congressional districts in the State have become law with Wednesday's override of Governor Nixon's veto. With it, a number of entertaining developments.

First, a little background. The Missouri Democratic Party as a whole was against the map because it drew out a Democratic Congressman (Russ Carnahan). Missouri's number of Representatives has dropped from 9 to 8, and the new districts create 6 strongly Republican and 2 Democrat districts - formerly there was 6 Rep and 3 Dem. The State's Legislative bodies are strongly Republican, so of course they are going to draw out a Democrat. Well, in doing so, they smartly strengthened their 6 districts and the districts of the two BLACK incumbents, namely the good Reverend Cleaver, and Lacy Clay of St Louis.

Now, enter the politics of race in the Democratic Party. Republicans in the Missouri House needed four Democratic votes to override Nixon's veto. Cleaver and Clay talked four Black State Legislators in their districts into voting for the override and against a majority of their party. Why? Because it would save their black asses if the veto stood and a Federal Court redrew the lines. Cleaver and Clay did all this while not taking Russ Carnahan's calls throughout the process. Carnahan is totally pissed, having confronted both Cleaver and Clay on the floor of the US House allegedly telling Clay "Fuck you, Thanks for the help".

Another sideshow here is the remarks of two of the black Representatives who voted for the override. Ignorant Ghetto Bitch Jamilah Nasheed stated "I'm black before I'm a Democrat" when asked why she backed overriding the Governor's veto, and Kansas City Representative and dumb as a bag of hammers Jonas Hughes stated that his "Congressman (meaning Cleaver) asked him to" vote for the override while holding back tears. What a pussy.

State Politics really are a lot of fun - They jus' keepin' it real!

Missouri House Approves Congressional Redistricting Map

On Thursday, The Missouri House of Representatives approved their version of the newest US Congressional District maps for Missouri. Redistricting needs to be done because the State lost a seat in the 2010 Census. Missouri will now have 8 Representatives in Washington DC instead of nine. A district would be lost in the St Louis area, removing one currently Democratic Representative (Probably Russ Carnahan-good riddance). The map has been sent to the Senate for approval.

In the new map, Congressman Cleaver's 5th District will change. It would no longer include any of Cass county, but would add three rural counties to the east of Kansas City. Also added to the 5th, parts of Kansas City and Gladstone north of the river - subtracted would be the Northeastern part of Lee's Summit. Still a majority Democrat district, but not as much so as has been the case. Unfortunately Cleaver is probably safe for the foreseeable future.

Most Democrats in the House were against this redistricting plan arguing that in the best of times for Democrats they could only win 2 of the 8 seats while in general statewide elections Democrats garner around 50% of the votes typically. And of course Jonas Hughes, undoubtedly the DUMBEST member of the Missouri House had something to say as well.

There were also a few Republicans not happy with the map. Those from the three rural counties added to the fifth district were apparently not pleased that a Communist sympathizing, race-baiter will be their new US Congressman. A very similar map will likely be approved by the Senate and go to the Governor for signature. It will be interesting to see if the Democrat Jay Nixon will veto or not.
