"Justice" Dept approves Texas congressional map
Gee. What a surprise.

In a devastating blow to Democrats and minorities, Jesus John Ashcroft signed off on the Rove/DeLay congressional redistricting plan on Friday, putting the bitterly contested map a step closer to becoming reality in time for the 2004 elections.

Republican officials praised the decision, but opponents blasted it as the action of a highly partisan Justice Department that "hijacks" minority voting rights for political gain.
