JT Concerning Gerrymandering And Obama

"In 1996, during his first run for office, in the Illinois State Senate, Obama defeated his former political mentor Alice Palmer by successfully challenging her nominating petitions and forcing her off the ballot, effectively ending her career. A few years later, Illinois Democrats, after toiling in the minority in the Senate, gerrymandered the state to produce a Democratic majority. While drafting the new political map, Obama helped redraw his own district northward to include some of Chicago’s wealthiest citizens, making the district a powerful financial and political base that he used to win his U.S. Senate seat, a few years later."

Dire, I read some, but not all of your listed source. Talk about cherry picking to find something to throw at me, you really took the prize.  How many pages long was your source? You picked one small paragraph to post. Great job.

The entire article concerned Democrats gerrymandering their state assembly districts. Of which, Obama, as state senator, was a major contributor.  He committed what you continuously accuse the Republicans of.
