Whether the U.S. Supreme Court gets involved or not one thing will remain the same: Virginia’s 5th Congressional District.
While mainstream media types drone on and on about the 3rd Congressional District, they continue to completely ignore the craziness of the 5th. Clearly the oddest Congressional District in Virginia, it reaches from the North Carolina border up to almost northern Virginia. Why? White gerrymandering that’s why. Anything to ensure that a seat is drawn for a white Republican to win means no one in the press of the same persuasion will notice. They continue to focus on the third district after 150 years of rigging election to be won by certain people.
The member of Congress who is in the 5th, soon-to-be-former Rep. Robert Hurt will leave at the end of the year after doing absolutely nothing in Congress.
