Doesn't anyone else think it's time the public found out who funded the coalition of groups suing the Legislature over its redistricting maps? Who paid plaintiff attorney David King?God knows, it wasn't the League of Women Voters of Florida.
So, how does a group with such a tiny budget wrangle a team of high-priced, Gucci-shoed lawyers, arguing every one of the redistricting lawsuits in court?

“The plaintiffs’ maps Judge Lewis recommended were drawn by John ONeill, an analyst hired through Strategic Telemetry, a Washington-based Democratic consulting firm.”
General Counsel to national organization in charge of advancing Democratic congressional redistricting efforts following the 2010 census.
(George Soros International)
> Much of the money behind the recommended plaintiffs’ maps came from a soft-money haven called the National Democratic Redistricting Trust.
“FEC advises Dem. redistricting group it may raise unlimited funds ... The Federal Election Commission released an Advisory Opinion today [AO 2010-13] freeing up the National Democratic Redistricting Trust to raise soft money for legal and administrative efforts.”
“Strategic Telemetry provides cutting edge microtargeting, mapping, and data analysis consulting services to the most successful corporations, campaigns, and non-profit organizations. We draw our origins in politics, providing advanced targeting capabilities to John Kerry’s 2004 campaign and Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign.”
As a result, my Congressman will probably be Charlie F’in Crist. These libs are “all politics all the time” and whatever it takes, including pushing a Dem-favorable redistricting is going to happen.
Are we governed by our elected reps... or RULED by (liberal) black robed despots, who answer to no one? Oh the hypocrisy when Bernie and DemWits demand we “get money outta politics” and yet spineless RINOs refuse to fight!
