Local Leaders Join Redistricting Lawsuit

Posted by wlpo on July 27, 2011

Saying it “disrespects the will of voters”, Congressman Aaron Schock and Adam Kinzinger have joined a lawsuit against Illinois’ new redistricting map.

Republican representatives issued a statement today saying the map can’t stand and that it discriminates against the state’s growing Hispanic population.  Kinzinger and Schock go on to say they’re disappointed Governor Quinn “chose to rubber stamp this flawed map” but they’re confident a court will “reverse the naked partisan power-grab by the Democrats”.

Republican State Senator Sue Rezin is also part of the lawsuit.
