Democrats are trying to re-gerrymander the 2024 elections!

NYGOP Chair Ed Cox Responds to Hochul, James Amicus Brief in the Hoffman litigation


ALBANY – NYGOP Chair Ed Cox released the following statement in response to the Hoffman Amicus brief filed by Governor Hochul and Attorney General James challenging New York’s 2022 Congressional maps:

“Democrats’ unconstitutional 2022 gerrymander was thrown out by three separate courts and Washington Democrats are now desperate to enact a new gerrymander in New York in time for the 2024 elections.

“The Hoffman litigation is their attempt to get the New York judiciary to disregard the will of the voters of New York who first passed the constitutional amendment that created a new redistricting process and then defeated an attempt by Democrats in Albany to weaken those reforms.

“By caving to an unprecedented and ham-handed use of the Senate’s ‘advice and consent’ power and by signing on to this Amicus brief for a gubernatorial-appointed appellate court, Governor Hochul is abandoning any pretense of maintaining judicial independence and respecting our state’s constitution.

“Albany Democrats have already corrupted the judicial nominating process via an unconstitutional program bill making it easier to do a back-room nomination deal with the Governor as well as the unprecedented rejection of the highly qualified Justice Hector LaSalle for Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals.

“James’ Amicus brief and its bogus arguments fueled by partisan politics is leading Governor Hochul down the path of corrupting the Court of Appeals and tarnishing its reputation as one of the greatest common law courts in the world.

“This is a tragedy in the making, not just for New York’s judiciary, but for New York State, as Democrats further corrupt our political and governmental processes in their pursuit of more power at all costs — in this case over the judiciary by corrupting the nominating process and appropriating the Governor’s nominating power.”
