Democrats Praise Amendment 7 Ruling
Jul 8, 2010
Sunshine State News
With a Leon County Circuit Court judge in Tallahassee knocking Amendment 7 -- a redistricting measure backed by both houses of the Legislature -- off the ballot, Democratic leaders are praising the ruling. While there have been some prominent exceptions, such as U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown and Senate Minority Leader Al Lawson, D-Tallahassee, most Florida Democrats opposed Amendment 7, backing Amendments 5 and 6 which are being supported by FairDistricts Florida.
“Today, a Florida court has properly recognized the failings and deceit of a Republican-led legislative attempt to undermine the citizen-backed FairDistricts reapportionment ballot measures,” said House Minority Leader Franklin Sands, D-Weston. “The Leon County Circuit Court ruling is a victory for all Floridians who believe that political districts should not be drawn with the intent of helping incumbents and political parties retain their power.”
“From its genesis, the Amendment 7 proposal has been a deceptive and despicable display of partisan power-grabbing by Republican legislative leaders,” added Sands.
“I am pleased that the court has recognized that the proposal is seriously flawed and doesn’t deserve further consideration.”
Sen. Dan Gelber, D-Miami Beach, who is currently locked in a tight battle with Sen. Dave Aronberg, D-Greenacres, for the Democratic attorney general nomination, has been a vocal opponent of Amendment 7 and praised Thursday’s ruling.
“Today’s ruling by the Leon County Circuit Court is a victory for Floridians who are tired of the special interests' control of the Legislature,” said Gelber. “I fought aggressively this legislative session against efforts by the Republican majority to place Amendment 7 on the ballot. Unfortunately, they prevailed because of the gerrymandered control they have in the House and Senate. The court's ruling vindicates the efforts of so many right-thinking Floridians who want to be able to pick their elected officials, rather than vice-versa."
