FiredUp! reports that four House Democrats–Jamilah Nasheed, Penny Hubbard, Karla May and Michael Brown–voted for the Republican redistricting plan. The first three of them are from St. Louis and Michael Brown is from KC. Hubbard defeated the Rev. James Morris last August for the seat in HD 58. Ain’t this a shame. Morris was an excellent Democrat. Considering that these four just voted for a plan that would leave Democrats permanently condemned to hold two Congressional seats out of eight, they don’t even deserve a D after their names.
As Sean points out, there were three Republicans who voted against the plan because it was too partisan. It was pure partisan poppycock and these four should hang their heads in shame.
