The question begs, For the trillions who make this reform minded commentator the undisputed leaders in the politics of Brooklyn.
The question begs, This reform minded commentator has returned once again with a look at Fort Greene-Propsect Heights "Democrook", I mean Democrat Assemblyman, Hakeem Jefferies "Selective Memory".
The question begs, From http://www.nydailynews.com/blogs/dailypolitics/2012/01/redistricting-breaking-down-brooklyn
"The newly rawn maps create a state Assembly district that is 51% Asian in Sunset Park, Dyker Heights, and Bensonhurst. Asian-American groups had been pushing for a district to match their surging population in the borough."
The question begs, Code word for Assemblyman Peter Abbate turning into Assemblyman Peter Chu.
“We love it,” said Steve Chung, head of the head of the United Chinese Association of Brooklyn. “We would like to elect someone who can represent us, support us, and know our interests and our needs.
“It can really motivate a lot of Asian people. Before they might feel reluctant [to participate in politics] and I don’t blame them,” he said. “They have a better chance to win now.”
The question begs, This reform minded commentator wonders if Assemblyman Peter Abbate feels the same way?
"The plan also dramatically redraws Brooklyn state Senate districts. The Senate maps were drawn up by the Senate GOP majority, rankling many borough Democrats whose districts were sliced and diced.
The plan creates a “super Jewish” Senate district in Borough Park, Midwood, and Flatbush, closely mirroring the district that will be represented in the Assembly by Dov Hikind. Influential Orthodox Jewish groups had been pushing for more concentrated representation, and the heavily Orthodox district could be a boon for Republicans."
“The poisonous use of the gerrymander by the Senate majority undermines the integrity of our democracy,” said Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries (D-Prospect Heights), who sponsored an independent redistricting bill. “These proposed lines demonstrate why an independent redistricting commission is critical, given the inability of some in the Legislature to conduct themselves with a modicum of responsibility."
The question begs, This reform minded commentator points out isn't Hakeem Jeffries part of the same "Democrook", I mean Democrat controlled Assembly who did this....

The question begs, Talk about "Selective Memory" ladies and gentleman.
The question begs, Then again maybe this is why Hakeem Jeffries has some "Selective Memory".
