Statement from NYSYR Chair Peter Giunta on New York’s state and federal electoral maps being ruled unconstitutional

By March 31, 2022Uncategorized

“Today’s ruling by Stueben County Justice Patrick McAllister validates what Republicans and election watchdogs have contended all along: the district maps created and approved by the Democrat supermajorities in the New York State Legislature violate the constitution to partisanly favor Democrats over Republicans.  These maps were a blatant power grab by New York Democrats, who’ve tried desperately to secure their grasp on power amid party infighting, which has only intensified, as well as numerous Republican gains made last cycle.  Judge McAllister’s ruling is a major victory in the fight for election integrity and we are more than confident that this order will be upheld after Democrats submit their appeal.”
