Dems: ‘We’ll hold our noses ‘til we pull ‘em off’ to reach agreement

Democratic Redistricting Commissioner George Moses submitted a total of five new legislative plans this morning, including one that makes a small modification to one of the others. "They aren't the ones that we would draw in what we would consider to be a perfect world," Moses told GOP commissioners. "But in order to move the process forward, we are willing to hold our noses 'til we pull 'em off if we have to, and vote for any of these maps that you care to move."

GOP Commissioner Lou Esposito said, "I appreciate the level of effort, I think obviously it's been considerable. I think because of that we're just going to need some time to sit down and go through these." The commission then agreed to discuss the plans this afternoon.
