ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley has testified it was "part of my intent" to shift a congressional district long held by a Republican to a Democrat, when the state redrew the state's eight districts in 2011.
O'Malley's April deposition in a federal lawsuit was recently made public.
O'Malley, a Democrat whose office held strong influence over redistricting, testified that while he intended to comply with the law, he also intended to "create a district where the people would be more likely to elect a Democrat than a Republican."
