A warning over Dems controlling power of the pen

U.S. Capitol 3A longtime conservative and Ohio native is warning that Democrats are attempting to steal his home state and others by overseeing redistricting. 

National Democratic Redistricting Committee, led by former U.S. attorney general Eric Holder, is pouring millions of dollars into state-level elections in 11 states, with Ohio topping the list.

The left-wing group says this year's election cycle is critical to the congressional redistricting process because the winners will participate in drawing Congressional maps for the decade starting in 2021, The Associated Press has reported.

GOP and Dems duking it outKen Blackwell, who has held numerous states offices in Ohio, including state treasurer and secretary of state, says the national influence of the Republican Party "frustrates" Holder and other Democrats.

"And they would do anything. They would change the rules," warns Blackwell, now with the Family Research Council. "They would change the size of the chess board to gain the political position that voters and the normal process has denied them."

One thing this group argues against, says Blackwell, is the old-fashioned method of counting people who are actually physically present.  

"Because at the end of the day," he says, "if they can inflate numbers, if they can manipulate the statistics by algorithms, they think that they can force the issue of who wins and who loses in particular congressional districts."

The bigger concern, he adds, is that he who has the pen in hand gets to draw the congressional maps.
