Politico reported that state Rep. Janet Adkins (R) made the suggestion regarding U.S. Rep. Corrinne Brown’s (D) district in a closed-door meeting of the North Florida Republican caucus.
“It’s a perfect storm,” Adkins said on the audio recording. “You draw it in such a fashion so perhaps, a majority, or maybe not a majority, but a number of them will live in the prisons, thereby not being able to vote.”
Adkins made sure there were no reporters in the room before she made her comments, according to the report.
Speaking of fashion, Janet, you look lovely in those flowing white robes, and the hood adds just the perfect touch of nostalgia for those old times there that are not forgotten.
Florida is undergoing redistricting because the lines drawn the last time were deemed to be in violation of the Florida constitution’s ban on making them blatantly partisan. The legislature had to have a special session in August to try again, and they deadlocked. Now it’s up to the court to do it right.
