Corrine Brown’s opponent comments on ‘Fair Districts’ lawsuit

In a press release sent out shortly after a District Court Judge rejected a lawsuit challenging Florida’s “Fair Districts” Amendment 6, would-be representative Mike Yost said that the suit was simply another attempt at gerrymandering. Yost, who lost to Democratic incumbent Corrine Brown in 2010 (and has already launched another campaign to unseat her) said that the suit “was clearly another attempt to allow her to continue to force the Legislature to draw districts that would let the representatives choose their voters, not the voters choosing their representatives.”

Sixty-three percent of Florida voters voted for Amendment 6, which were created to help end the practice of gerrymandering, or drawing congressional lines to benefit incumbents. Brown’s congressional district is often referred to as one of the most blatant examples of the practice.

Yost is one of the few Republicans who would likely benefit from redrawn district lines. Brown has held office for more than 17 years — a fact many say is due to her awkwardly drawn district, which stretches for over 100 miles and includes portions of Jacksonville and Orlando. Many Republicans, including Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Miami, have opposed the “Fair District” amendments. Diaz-Balart joined Brown in the suit challenging Amendment 6, which will eventually force some of Florida’s district lines to be redrawn.

“Power corrupts, but absolute power corrupts absolutely as the old saying goes and it is time to end the ‘absolute power’ Corrine Brown feels she has with the people of this District,” said Yost, in today’s press release.

Brown and Diaz-Balart have said they plan to appeal today’s ruling.
