Arizona Gives Redistricting Job to Liberal Group Tied to Obama Campaign (Updated)
The current Arizona Congressional Districts (GSA)
After census numbers were released this year the State of Arizona picked up a seat in Congress. The Republican-led state just hired a liberal group tied to the Obama campaign to redistrict the state.
Tucson, AZ — Arizona’s Independent Redistricting Commission announced Wednesday that the bid for the mapping process of Arizona’s congressional and legislative districts had been awarded to Strategic Telemetry, a campaign consulting firm for left-wing candidates.
The company’s president, Ken Strasma, was President Obama’s national target director.
When asked about this Ruth McClung said, “America needs to be aware of what is happening in Arizona. Our Independent Redistricting Commissionhas just selected a Democrat campaign company, to redistrict our state. Arizona voters want fair and impartial lines for their new districts. Why pick this campaign company which clearly has a conflict of interest? It doesn’t take a Rocket Scientist to figure out there is much more to this than meets the eye!”
Ms. McClung went on to say, “The people of this country need to stand up against this type of political bias when it comes to mapping our political districts, not just in Arizona, but all over the country.”
