EarHustle411 is having a speechless feeling with this next post yet again. Politics aside from the entertainment industry is one of the many areas that never ceases to amaze the writing staff. We came across a post on Facebook by NewsOne’s Roland Martin. We are not blind to anything that emerges in the world of politics but to hear the betrayal and conspiracy live on tape, just takes so much out of our somewhat trust that politicians will do right by the American people regardless of what color they may be.
Florida Congresswoman Corrine Brown is the victim of a vicious attack to try to “unseat” her from her position by members of the Florida Republican Party. This blatant disrespectful plan was put together by Florida State Rep. Janet Adkins and in this “secret” meeting of the members Florida Republican Party was captured on audio. EarHustle411 and the writing staff wants to know what is so wrong about minorities having adequate representation in areas where they live and pay taxes? Politicians that have these secret meetings and go to great lengths to remove a politician whose view they don’t like, they don’t need to be in any political office because they are always going to be hell-bent on removing the opposition. This is AMERICA and it’s not a dictatorship, it’s supposed to be a democracy. Democratic processes are to go forth for what’s best for the people…not the hateful nutcases that have been holding political seats for eons and doing everything they can to remove representatives that are doing right by their office and want not just minorities but all people to have the same opportunities.
This backroom meetings and secretive crap is the very reason the U.S. is going to hell with gasoline underwear on and those who are on the wrong side of doing for the people should be burned to a crisp FIRST!!!
Read more and listen to the audio and watch Roland Brown and Rep. Corrine Brown on NewsOne Now:
Members of the Florida Republican Party conducted a secret meeting to lay out a plan to unseat Congresswoman Corrine Brown through redistricting. The plan – spearheaded by Florida State Rep. Janet Adkins – would pack inmates/felons who are ineligible to vote into the 5th Congressional District.
But as lawmakers and GOP activists in the meeting were secretly plotting against Brown, they were also secretly being recorded.
Democratic Rep. Corrine Brown joined Roland Martin on Tuesday’s edition of NewsOne Now to discuss the GOP redistricting plot against her. She told Martin that neither the Democratic National Party nor the Florida Democratic Party have assisted her in combating the attack.
Politico.com reported Adkins as saying during the closed-door meeting, “You draw [Brown’s seat] in such a fashion so perhaps, a majority, or maybe not a majority, but a number of them will live in the prisons, thereby not being able to vote.”
Adkins, who is heard detailing the plan to oust Brown, is also heard on the leaked audio recording of the private GOP meeting saying the following about the population of the proposed congressional district:
“They’re a part of the population. No, they can’t vote. So when you take a look at, and I don’t know what the numbers are, but you take a look at how many minorities are in the prisons within that newly drawn proposed congressional — how many of them live in the prisons, that’s why Corrine Brown is so against having an east-west, because her concern is that they live in prisons and they can’t vote. So it’s a perfect storm.”
Brown said she knew by looking at the proposed 5th Congressional District lines, “they drew it to get rid of me.” She later commented that the purpose of the redrawn map was to “destroy the 5th Congressional District.”
Republicans in Florida have reportedly said the proposed redrawn 5th Congressional District was a Democratic idea, so in essence, Rep. Brown is “criticizing a Democratic plan.” Brown responded to that assertion, saying, “Let’s be clear, in politics you don’t have permanent friends or permanent enemies, you got permanent causes.”
“Whoever drew the district, they drew the district to take Congresswoman Corrine Brown out of that district, maybe hoping to get additional Democratic districts,” she said.
Brown continued, “A lot of people feel that we can be the sacrificial lambs, but we’ve already given. The 1965 Voting Rights Act is where we gave. We gave blood to be at the table … if you are not at the table, you’re on the menu.”
Rep. Brown also told Martin what is happening to her is not just happening in Florida – it’s taking place all over the country: “There is an organized effort to take African-Americans out for whatever purpose — divide our districts, try to get more civility in Congress — we’ve already given.”
