Texas' Congressional Delegation doing NOTHING as Holder plots next round of redistricting lawsuits

"And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell."
Matthew 10:28

While we were making this point yesterday...guess who was in Dallas doing what:
Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder met Tuesday with Latino grassroots organization leaders in North Texas to offer political and financial support for their efforts to mobilize Latino voters in the coming years.

Holder stopped in Dallas to attend a roundtable discussion and offer the backing of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, a group formed in January 2017 that raised more than $10 million during its first six months of active fundraising.

The committee's focus around the country is on breaking the Republican Party's control on how congressional district maps are drawn.
Translation: Holder's helping all of the usual suspect groups, who call every redistricting map Texas ever passes racist, raise more money than ever heading into the 2020 census.  This means more (and more ridiculous) redistricting lawsuits than ever.  That's the present trajectory.

But it's completely preventable.  Congress has jurisdiction to shut this down.  Unfortunately, the Texas Republican delegation is silent.  Likewise the candidates.

Bottom Line:  This is an obvious and predicable mess.  It's completely preventable.  Unfortunately, Texas' Republican Congressional delegation doesn't have the will to prevent it.
