A scandal is unraveling in Maryland, as a Democratic governor just admitted he and several other leftist governors contributed to a gerrymandering scheme that gained them more power in the government.

Though Democratic redistricting and gerrymandering is illegal in the state of Maryland, these leftists manipulated the law in their favor.

Now the scandal is breaking as a result of a civil lawsuit which was filed in 2013.

Maryland Democratic Governor Martin O’Malley was the ringleader in a big gerrymandering scheme occurring before the 2012 election and it had everything to do with gaining votes for the Democratic Party.

His wrongdoings are finally coming to light because of the civil trial, as reported by The Daily Caller:

Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley admitted that he, along with other Maryland Democrats, gerrymandered the state’s 6th district to oust long-time Republican incumbent Rep. Roscoe Bartlett in 2012, the Baltimore Sun reported Wednesday.

A lawsuit filed in 2013 alleged gerrymandering has been moving through Maryland’s courts, forcing Democrats to talk about what the Baltimore Sun says many already suspected: Democratic redistricting was unconstitutional.

Following the 2010 census, Democrats expanded Bartlett’s 6th district into the heavily-Democratic Montgomery and Frederick counties.

“That was my hope,” O’Malley told attorneys in his deposition.

“It was my intent to create … a district where the people would be more likely to elect a Democrat than a Republican.”

O’Malley and his accomplices were caught fairly quickly, but denied having anything to do with the sudden shift in political alliances in the 6th district of Maryland.

Essentially however, they reshaped the political districts to gain more of a Democratic majority in the district – thus gaining more votes for the Democratic Party and pushing out a GOP congressman.

The Daily Caller reported:

In 2010, Bartlett won the 6th district by 28 points over his Democratic challenger.

In the 2012 election, after the Democrats shuffled the maps, Bartlett lost his seat by 21 points to Democrat John Delaney.

Attorneys conducted depositions on O’Malley, House Speaker Michael Busch, and Senate President Thomas Mike Miller Jr., all of whom acknowledged that the redistricting was suspect, though Miller argued he was not involved.

O’Malley said the map probably wasn’t “good for the country as a whole.”

The legalities of the matter are one thing, but what certainly strikes a nerve is the fact that gerrymandering interferes with the First Amendment right for citizens to have their voices heard, and that is exactly what the law was fighting against.

Redistricting will soon follow to allow for the people’s votes to work in a way that is consistent with their political beliefs – and avoid Democrats screwing over Republican voters to get what they want.

The Daily Caller reported:

Stephen Shapiro, a former federal employee and the plaintiff in the case, argues that the gerrymandering violated the First Amendment rights of Republican voters.

His suit was nearly thrown out by a district judge, but appeals brought it all the way to the Supreme Court in 2015, which unanimously branded the district map a “crazy quilt,” and demanded that the lawsuit be allowed to continue.

Now, with Republican Gov. Larry Hogan, the state is moving toward redistricting reform.

Hogan has been calling for a non-partisan redistricting commission since his election in 2014, arguing that with the 2020 census and subsequent redistricting only one election away, it’s imperative that changes be made.
