During an interview on Fox News former Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker explains Democrat’s nefarious plan to “sue to turn states blue.”
“What you’ve got is Eric Holder with the support of Barack Obama spending hundreds of millions of dollars across the nation, and they just go in from one state after the next and they sue until it’s blue” Walker claimed.
“They are using a litigation process to take redistricting out of the hands of the people we elect, the people we hold accountable in our state legislative bodies, and trying to send it to the courts where they have friendly folks, many of whom have been appointed by some of their allies, and they are trying to sue to change the makeup really for, I think, a generation to come in terms of putting Democrats in power” he added.
Watch as Scott Walker explains how the plan to sue to turn states blue works:
DOOCY: “Thank you, Jillian. Meanwhile, ‘Sue until it’s blue.’ Our next guest sounding the alarm on the left’s judicial power grab, as some have described it, saying it’s time for Republicans to wake up and see how unelected judges are redrawing maps to help elect more Democrats.
Here to explain, Scott Walker, former governor of Wisconsin and national finance chairman for the Republican Redistricting Trust. Governor, good morning to you.
What does ‘Sue until it’s blue’ mean?”
WALKER: “What you’ve got is Eric Holder with the support of Barack Obama spending hundreds of millions of dollars across the nation, and they just go in from one state after the next and they sue until it’s blue.
They are using a litigation process to take redistricting out of the hands of the people we elect, the people we hold accountable in our state legislative bodies, and trying to send it to the courts where they have friendly folks, many of whom have been appointed by some of their allies, and they are trying to sue to change the makeup really for, I think, a generation to come in terms of putting Democrats in power.”
DOOCY: “All right. Let’s take a look at some of the headlines from ‘The New York Times.’ Judges rule Michigan congressional districts are unconstitutionally gerrymandered. They also had ‘Ohio congressional map is illegal gerrymander, federal court rules.’ Okay, so what happens is they start suing.
It’s not necessarily a slam dunk that they’re going to win, but it gets the ball moving, right?”
WALKER: “Right. For the the time being they get actions by the court. This is what they do. The whole strategy of the left is to keep going until they find a friendly judge, someone who is not directly elected and accountable to the voters and try to sue.
They did it firsthand in Wisconsin. They tried to take over our Wisconsin Supreme Court.
Thankfully, we fought back just about a month ago. But their strategy last year, this year, next year, is take over the Wisconsin Supreme Court so they would have a friendly activist majority in the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
They are doing it in Ohio and Michigan.
You already look even in last year’s elections, there is about 15 seats in four different states where they already used the litigation process to try and make it competitive. That’s at least part of the reason why Nancy Pelosi is now the Speaker.
They want to make her and people like her permanently in charge of the U.S. House. We can’t let them do that. We have got to fight back to for truly fair maps. If we have fair maps, if our ideas work, if we have a competitive marketplace to sell our message to the American people, we can win district by district. But we can’t do it if it’s always stuck in the court.”
DOOCY: Isn’t it up to the state legislatures to figure out how to draw a district on the map?”
WALKER: “That’s exactly right. That’s the way most people want it. People they want elect are accountable.
What they do is go from state to state and they try and litigate. They sue, they pick a state and then they sue until it’s blue and that’s the strategy we have seen used over and over again.
There is a lot of folks out there unelected bureaucrats. These commissions they create which are clearly partisan. Where you put power in the hands of people who aren’t elected and then these judges. Many of these federal judges who have lifetime appointments and they love nothing more than to be activists out there.
I appreciate the fact that the president tweeted about it.”
“I don’t know if people understand how significant this is. This isn’t just about the 2020 elections. It’s about the fact that they could put in place maps across America that make it almost impossible for the next decade to win in these districts.
