I am writing from North Carolina to ask for your help defending our right to vote by opposing Trump nominee Thomas Farr’s appointment to be a Federal Judge in the Eastern District of North Carolina. […]
Do you have questions about the “Special Master” who may help redraw North Carolina’s legislative districts?
If so, I have some answers!
The current extremist super-majority in the North Carolina General Assembly has systematically attacked fair elections to the point that the state legislature no longer represents the will of the people of North Carolina. These unpatriotic attacks on American Democracy have resulted in multiple court cases, costing North Carolina taxpayers millions of dollars. We need fair elections, including making the process of drawing electoral maps impartial and transparent, so that the North Carolina government is of, by and for the people.
North Carolina’s “monster” voting law imposed a number of voting restrictions and was struck down by the US 4th Cir. Court of Appeals, which held that the law was “enacted with racially discriminatory intent in violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment and § 2 of the Voting Rights Act”. Ousted former NC governor McCrory appealed it to the US Supreme Court a few days before he left office.
In a democracy, the people must be included, not excluded, from public discourse and legislative deliberations.
