|LEFTWING RADICAL GEORGE SOROS, UNIONS, AND TRIAL LAWYERS ARE
FINANCING PROPONENTS OF AMENDMENTS 5 AND 6
Check who has donated to the proponents: here.
AMENDMENTS #5 AND #6 deal with redistricting:
The purpose of these two measures is to amend Florida’s Constitution to set standards for the Legislature to follow when establishing legislative (#5) and congressional (#6) district boundaries. Proponents say this will establish fairness standards for use in creating legislative district boundaries. But who will determine what is fair? Amendments 5 and 6 “require legislators to achieve the seemingly impossible when they draw new district lines that are certain to be second-guessed by activist ‘judges gone wild.’ Opponents call these Amendments ‘the full-employment act for lawyers’ because the contradictory mandates outlined in Amendments 5 and 6 will lead to endless litigations. The long list of lawyers and law firms contributing to FairDistricts is no accident, critics say.
ON THE BALLOT:
Via FL. Div. of Elections –-> Amendments/Initiatives:
Cost can’t be determined. But there will be more litigations, more challenges in the courts; more costs to Floridians.
The Complete Financial Information Statement indicates that: The Financial Impact Estimating Conference (FIEC) expects that the proposed amendment may result in increased costs; however, the magnitude of the fiscal impact of these amendments cannot be determined.
• The State may incur additional legal costs to litigate the redistricting plans.
“The State may incur additional legal costs to litigate the redistricting plans developed under the proposed constitutional standards…For example, the requirement that every district be drawn so as not to favor or disfavor any incumbent or political party may spawn challenges…These legal costs are indeterminate.”
State costs for previous redistricting efforts were $15 Millions for the 1990 cycle and about $11.7 Millions for the 2000 cycle. However, “the proposed amendments will increase litigation costs to levels at least seven to ten times those experienced in the most recent apportionments.”
• Address: 2665 South Bayshore Drive, Suite M-103, Miami, FL 33133.
• Executives: Manuel A. Diaz, Richard A. Berkowitz, Ellen Freidin
The group is run by: Miami lawyer Ellen Freidin, a Democrat, and Tallahassee lawyer Thom Rumberger, a former Republican legislator.
George Soros behind the Amendments: The proponents, Fair Districts for Florida, “amassed a war chest of almost $7 million, according to campaign finance reports filed Friday. Most of the money has come in six-figure checks from liberal special interests including teachers’ unions, trial attorneys and America Votes, a get-out-the-vote group largely financed by billionaire businessman George Soros.”
More unions: ACORN, National Air Traffic Controllers, AFL-CIO, EMILY’s List, Florida Pipe Trades Council, Teachers Unions, etc.
Leftwing politicians: Robert Wexler, Alan Grayson, etc.
Among the opponents are: Corrine Brown, an African-American Democratic congresswoman (Jacksonville to near Orlando), and Mario Diaz-Balart, a Republican congressman (Miami to the Gulf Coast). Kurt Browning, former Florida secretary of state said, “It’s unworkable, will cause a tremendous amount of chaos, and you’ll end up in court with judges deciding the districts.”
Also: Rep. Dean Cannon, R-Winter Park, and Sen. Mike Haridopolos, R-Melbourne, who will lead the Legislature as it prepares for redistricting.
