RE: Gerrymandered Census

I mentioned House Rep. Mel Watt last week in my post about the Gerrymandered Census. As I stated before Watt is one of the most liberal members of the Congress and the only way he continues to get elected is because of gerrymandered districts.

The National Journal has posted the top 10 most liberal and conservative members of the Congress. It’s no surprise that Watt is tied for first. Is Watt really representing the average voter in the state of North Carolina?

The 10 Most Liberal House Dems    
1. Rush Holt (D-NJ)
1. Gwen Moore (D-WI)
1. John Olver (D-MA)
1. Linda Sanchez (D-CA)
1. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL)
1. Louise Slaughter (D-NY)
1. Mel Watt (D-NC)
1. Henry Waxman (D-CA)
9. Kathy Castor (D-FL)
10. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-IL)
