Constitutionality of Legislative and Congressional
Boundaries Challenged; Court filings show Districts Reflect
Two groups of concerned Arizona voters filed suit today seeking a court order to
invalidate the unconstitutional and partisan legislative and congressional district
boundaries approved by the Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission.
Both the U.S. and Arizona Constitution require that legislative districts be equal in
population -- or as nearly equal as practicable. Yet, the legislative districts created by
the IRC are unjustifiably unequal.
In fact, more than half the districts are "over-populated" and virtually all of the rest are
"under-populated." Although limited deviations can be tolerated if based on legitimate
reasons, the extent of these deviations alone should render the district boundaries
illegal. But it is the IRC’s pattern of overpopulating some districts and under-populating
others that proves the IRC (i) operated with an improper partisan bias, (ii) flagrantly
violated its legal obligation to be "independent," (iii) and intentionally violated the U.S.
and Arizona Constitutions.
As created by the Commission's Democrat majority, almost every district that leans
Republican is over-populated – or “packed” – with Republican voters and, in some
cases, significantly so. And, almost every single district that leans Democratic is underpopulated.
