Virginia’s bipartisan redistricting commission could give up on trying to redraw the state’s legislative districts after intense partisan bickering that showed few signs of letting up during a virtual meeting Monday.
The commission’s last in-person meeting, which was Friday, imploded after Democrats failed to get agreement on their proposed gerrymandered maps for the state House and Senate they should use as a starting point.
The commission is tasked with updating the state’s political districts based on new numbers from the U.S. census.
The 16-member commission is evenly split between Democratic and Republican appointees. The partisan divide has so far proved insurmountable.
State law gives the commission 14 days after “its initial failure to submit a plan to the General Assembly.” But some members, including Democratic citizen co-chair Greta Harris, have already suggested that the maps will be drawn by Virginia’s Supreme Court. It serves as a backstop if all else fails.
The meeting ended after Harris said she was removing herself from the commission and stormed out, effectively ending the meeting because it lacked a quorum. Others wanted to push on.
After her drama filled storming out from the meeting, Harris backtracked to the Richmond Times-Dispatch that she “did not resign. I just left the meeting.”
