House Republicans Hank Zuber and Scott DeLano complain about map they drew

Rep. Hank Zuber (R-Ocean Springs)
Rep. Scott DeLano (R-Biloxi)

From the "How Dare They?" file, we have an astonishing complaint from two Gulf Coast legislators.  Rep. Hank Zuber (R-Ocean Springs) and Rep. Scott DeLano (R-Biloxi) went on local TV on the Coast and said the Coast should have gained a representative under the House map, and the Delta should have lost two.

Let's dispose of the mundane part first.  The Coast, still suffering from Katrina, was lucky not to lose a seat.  It certainly isn't in line for an additional seat.  That's just crazy talk.

Now let's talk about the red meat.  Scott DeLano and Hank Zuber sat down with the other Coast Republicans and drew their districts that were in the House plan they voted against.  That's right, they created the Coast map that they are now on TV complaining about and that they voted against.
