Skip to comments.ILLINOIS 4TH DISTRICT: RACIAL GERRYMANDERING & THE LATIN 'EARMUFFS (More hypocrisy from Guitteriez)
Posted on 08/03/2014 10:30:22 AM PDT by Kid Shelleen
After the 2011 redistricting of the Illinois congressional map, two of the states districts were featured on Slates list for the 20 most gerrymandered in the country--Illinoiss fourth, and seventeenth districts. After redistricting, the seventeenth became more compact and rational. The fourth is now even crazier. The fourth, known as the Latin "earmuffs, for obvious reasons (look at it), ranks among the top five most gerrymandered with Roll Call and the National Journal as well. --snip-- Democrats who redrew the Illinois congressional map in 2011, left the super-majority Hispanic fourth district intact, reducing Hispanic influence elsewhere in order to roll back the Republican gains of the Tea Party tidal wave of 2010, when the GOP picked up five congressional seats in long time Illinois Democrat strongholds.

"We moved our base camp last night and were now positioned literally
within feet of the river. Have been sitting here watching the border
patrol patrolling in their riverboats all night and all morning..."
Guitteriez is a racist socialist democrat scumbag, if you’ll forgive the redundancy, but they did the same thing to make sure Durbin’s pal Cheri Bustos was able to win over Tea Party incumbent Bobby Schilling. In IL if you can’t win at the ballot box, you win by redistricting.
Wait until these “border children” get re-settled and then we will see some real Gerrymandering.
We now know how this vote plantation looks like, and all around it people will be voting different while they “stay” on the plantation and vote for who they are told to vote for.
Bobby Schilling is looking good - hoping for a large turnout at the polls to return him to office.

This re-map demonstrates the pettyness of these politicans. It lists the Eisenhower Expressway as the renamed Chicago Kansas City Expressway and doesn’t show the Republican suburbs of Cicero and Berwyn. On Chicago’s near southwest side he does take in The Pilsen Little Village neighborhood and good chunks of the Brighton Park area which is Mexican and there is deep animosity between them and Puerto Ricans.
