"Waaaaaaaaaah...I Want My Naifeh"

Cue the crying Democrats over redistricting in 3...2...1..:

When Democrats controlled the General Assembly, they allowed Democratic Congressmen to decide their district lines and threw Republicans the scraps. When determining legislative districts, former House Speaker Jimmy Naifeh (D-Covington) had a goal not only of protecting Democratic incumbents, but especially those that were personally loyal to him. After the Naifeh crew got through carving up the House to protect themselves, Republicans would get the leftovers, and if you happened to get drawn out of your district, oh meant you probably gave Boss Jimmy trouble in the first place.
