The newly uncovered emails show:
A July 2011 public hearing before a Senate committee was highly orchestrated, with attorneys for the Legislature recruiting people to testify, outlining the testimony of witnesses and writing questions for the Republican members of the committee.
One email from attorney Jim Troupis to others working on redistricting discussed plans to prepare GOP committee members for the public hearing. "I assume this is just to say, 'Don't say much . . . ,' " Troupis wrote.
The redistricting team made a concerted effort to keep Latinos within the same Senate district so that if a court found problems with the way the maps were drawn, the changes that were needed would be minimal.
More evidence of two long-held contentions of mine: 1) Republicans can't win elections without gaming the system. Or at least, they sure as shit don't think they can. 2) Republicans are disproportionately technologically illiterate. Email leaves a trail. PERIOD. How many GOP pederasts and assorted other conservative criminals have to be taken down this way before they figure this shit out?! Lawyers should whisper over martinis at lunch. Never, ever, send that shit around electronically.
Or do ... because, ya know, it's pretty amusing watching y'all get caught with your pants down (in both the literal and metaphorical sense).
