Watch: Obama Appears In New Dem Ad Fighting Gerrymandering

4

Former President Obama says that “rethinking the way we draw our congressional districts” is vital to American democracy in a new video released by the National Democratic Redistricting Committee (NDRC) on Wednesday.

 

In the video from the group, which is led by Eric Holder, Obama’s former attorney general, the former president calls the surge in first-time candidates and the move to register more voters in 2018 “inspiring.” But he says that modern technology has allowed a “party in power to precision-draw a map in a way that packs the other parties supporters into as few congressional districts as possible.”

“It’s why your district might be shaped like a corkscrew,” Obama says. “But it’s also how a party gains more seats, while winning fewer votes. Which isn’t fair.”

He then goes on to assert that these antics have moved our political debates from the rational middle to the extreme, saying that’s why he supported Holder in creating the NDRC.

  1. If Husein Drech Obama and Eric Schvartz Holder have anything to do with this project then it must be worse than it seems. These 2 troublemakers are really bad news for America and worse for Yidden. They’re both garbage.

    • You’re an evil racist and should be charged with a hate crime. How dare you criticize 2 honorable African-American men. Since I’ve become AG, I cringe and run and hide in my safe-space when Adam Schiff calls me a racist. You should do the same. I work for tje Democrat minority.
