Deceased G.O.P. Strategist’s Hard Drives Reveal New Details on the Census Citizenship Question

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/30/us/census-citizenship-question-hofeller.html

Quote :
"Files on those drives showed that [Thomas B. Hofeller] wrote a study in 2015 concluding that adding a citizenship question to the census would allow Republicans to draft even more extreme gerrymandered maps to stymie Democrats. And months after urging President Trump's transition team to tack the question onto the census, he wrote the key portion of a draft Justice Department letter claiming the question was needed to enforce the 1965 Voting Rights Act — the rationale the administration later used to justify its decision."

Quote :
"Mr. Hofeller's exhaustive analysis of Texas state legislative districts concluded that such maps 'would be advantageous to Republicans and non-Hispanic whites,' and would dilute the political power of the state’s Hispanics."

The government lying about a partisan rationale won't make a bit of difference to the conservative judges who were lied to.
