Former AG Eric Holder says with Democrats in charge things will finally be “fair”:
These are victories not for a party but for our democracy. A motivated, committed people beat the special interests. The results tonight will ensure that the Commonwealth of Virginia will have fair maps for the next decade and that the will of the people will be respected. https://t.co/PVNgzZR5Pb

Republicans having a say equals a threat to “democracy” but Dems in full control makes everything “fair”? Puh-leeze!
So gerrymandering is cool again. Got it. https://t.co/gYpsTiLz11

But only when Democrats do it, or something. Maybe at some point Holder can explain how voting maps that were so “unfair” to Democrats still allowed the Dems to take control of the state.
