Today In Voter Suppression: Virginia Redistricting Plan Dead (for now)

The Virginia House of Delegates killed a plan [Wednesday] by the state Senate GOP to redraw legislative lines Wednesday. The Senate GOP plan emerged out of a surprise vote on Inaguration Day that took advantage of the absence of a Democratic state senator, a civil rights leader who had traveled to Washington, DC for the inauguration.

I'm really into these stories lately since they have fallen off the national radar post election. Also I love a tale of political trickery! It reminds me of when Congressman Santos secretly got his surrogates to secretly stay in Washington to vote on the President's stem bill. That's right I finally finished the West Wing.

Anyway, thank God for small victories?
