Now It's Official: Bush Favors Diluting Minority Voting Rights

FoxNews website reports that:

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Friday granted the Bush administration's request to join Texas in defending a Republican-friendly congressional map engineered by Rep. Tom DeLay.

The (Bush) Justice Department approved the plan although staff lawyers concluded that it diluted minority voting rights. The Bush administration asked the high court last week for permission to participate in the case, supporting Texas.

The cases are League of United Latin American Citizens v. Perry, 05-204; Travis County v. Perry, 05-254; Jackson v. Perry, 05-276; GI Forum of Texas v. Perry, 05-439.

Perry is the Republican Governor of Texas, an ally of Bush and Tom DeLay.

This really, really stinks.
