Cartel members, racist rioters and Al Sharpton are hanging their heads in mourning.
Disgraced ex-AG Eric Holder, despite a whole lot of hoping, doesn’t seem to have found the backing for a quixotic presidential race. Holder, the man who brought the Peter Principle to life the way that Geppetto brought Pinocchio to life, was convinced that there was room for him in the race.
Now he seems to have realized that there isn’t and will just confine himself to trying to rig redistricting.
In an op-ed in The Washington Post, Holder wrote that he will approach 2020 with the knowledge that congressional redistricting is set to take place the next year, though he said Democrats’ “primary objective” should be “making sure a Democratic president is sworn in on Jan. 20, 2021.”
“What happens in those races over the next two years will shape the next decade of our politics,” he wrote. “Our fight to end gerrymandering is about electing leaders who actually work for the interests of the people they are supposed to represent. I will do everything I can to ensure that the next Democratic president is not hobbled by a House of Representatives pulled to the extremes by members from gerrymandered districts.”
Like Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, Rep Maxine Waters and Rep. Tlaib?
No doubt applying the same strategies that eliminated free and open elections in California and transformed it into a one-party state will do wonders for the nation. And Holder isn’t even pretending that his goal isn’t to reshape the House into a pure Dem property.
Since leaving the Justice Department in 2015, Holder launched the National Redistricting Action Fund, aimed at combating gerrymandering and putting an emphasis on the 2021 redrawing of new districts. That effort recently merged with former President Barack Obama’s political group Organizing for Action and became the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, allowing Holder to harness the power of the Obama team’s list of supporters.
The coup continues.
