Judge gives Anaheim more rope in Voting Rights case

frayed-ropeOn Tuesday Orange County Superior Court Judge Franz Miller gave the City of Anaheim three more weeks before he decides whether a trial is warranted in the Voting Rights case filed against the city. Judge Miller granted Anaheim one last chance to change it’s mind before he makes a decision on July 30th. You know the saying, “Give ’em enough rope, and they’ll hang themselves.”

Back in April, Judge Miller granted the city’s request for a delay in his ruling so that their Citizens Review Committee could come up with a solution to the voting rights violations alleged in the CA Voting Rights lawsuit filed by the ACLU. He gave the city until July 9th to find a solution. As you have undoubtedly read, the Kris Murray led majority, of white women terrified at the prospect of Latino hoards taking control of the city government, have devised a scheme they think will satisfy the requirements of the California Voting Rights Act while preserving control by the, predominantly White, overlords currently running the pay-to-play business that is Anaheim government. A business that provides taxpayer subsidies to resort district businesses, at the expense of the less affluent areas of the city. A city where it’s too expensive to maintain and expand parks and recreation facilities, but not too expensive to give away future tax revenues to develop luxury hotels.

So Tuesday was supposed to be judgement day, sort of. We are presuming that Judge Miller was so baffled by the arrogance of Murray and her colleagues in trying to sell their sham of a district voting plan, passed despite the recommendations of their own Citizen’s Review Committee, that he had to wait until they seal their fate with the final required vote on their scheme scheduled for July 23rd. We suppose that Judge Miller has already made up his mind, he just wants to give the Murray Gang, one more chance to think about what they are doing and possibly change their minds.

We suspect that Judge Miller will be disappointed, and when July 30th rolls around the plan passed last week will still be on the table.
