one congressional district, the issue could affect many states grappling with what some call rachel jerrimandering, in an effort to disenfranchise. lisa stark has a preview. >> it involves village's third district from richmond to norfolk about 10 miles away. the district outlines were drawn by the republican legislature in virginia back in 2010 two are challenging the lines of the district. they say they were drawn based mainly on race. they argue that violates the voting rights act and the equal protection clause there say they packed black voters infl
7:36 pm
ininfluencing virginia's republican representatives in congress have now appealed to the u.s. supreme court and one of the issues the justices -- remember, there are just eight of them -- have to decide is whether these lawmakers who don't live in the district, don't represent it, actually can even bring this case. what the court has to decide is whether the lower court was right in tossing out the district and designed mainly based on race or whether the old map and the district are just final village is holding its primary on june 14th. >> lisa stark, thank you. the third and fourth districts are being contested and here is why: more than 50% of the voters in the third district are african-americans who mostly vote democrats. in the fourth district,
7:37 pm
african-american voters may up 31%. one of district has the greatest chance of the leadership. the third district dropped but they remain the largest voting block there. the fourth district redrawing the lines raises the percentage of black voters there it 41%, giving that district a slightly better chance of electing a democrat. joining me from washington, d.c., spencer overton at george washington, president for the joint center for political and economic studies. thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you. radio drawing the lines can impact elections. >> that's nothing new.
7:38 pm
we are seeing cases possibly in texas and north carolina and arizona and in virginia. what'snique and all these cases have in common is the situation of elected officials choosing voters. it's one of the issues and the problems with our system, the fact that outcomes are determined by elected officials what's important is the question: is race the predominant question or was this just politics?
7:39 pm
rachel purposes is strictly illegal. how do you prove that differentiation there? >> well, i think it's a contested issue. i don't know that the supreme court has dealt with it really well. they have basically said when race is the predominant factor, then it's basically unconstitutional. is court is a little more divided. the court has been divided when partisan politics is the pre dominant factor. >> issue is up in the air. the question here is: the republicans argue: we are concerned about this. one, we wanted to comply with the voting rights act to ensure there were enough black voters here more important, they are going to argue we were doing this for political purposes. we didn't want these democratic voters in our district and as your intro talked about, that's the injury.
7:40 pm
is there an injury in having more black voters in your district an injury that you can bring a lawsuit based on? you mentioned justice scalia's absence. if there is a tie, what happens and who does that help or hurt? that is going to help the voters who originally brought this because the lower court found race was a predominant factor and basically struck down this district as i am permissible. so, it could be 4-4, but based upon this alabama case from last yearmpermissible. so, it could be 4-4, but based upon this alabama case from last y r year, kennedy could vote with the liberals and it cower 4-4 or 5-3 possibly. >> let's talk about the voting rights act here it has been
7:41 pm
altered a bit. the court rolled back an important part of the voting rights act the question is will congress update to ensure that preclearance applies to different parts of the country. it did apply to virginia, which is why in this particular case, republicans argued that they could hack the african-american voters into this district. but again, it is contested. now that we have got a 4-4 court, it's unclear. it's actually much more likely that the supreme court will defer to circuit courts around the country and will often defer to kind of pro-voting rights decisions because justice scalia was not a big pro-voting rights justice in terms of his voting
7:42 pm
record. >>. >> how strong do you feel the case is against rachel geerrymandering if that is what the court finds happened here? >> in this case action i think it's a strong case that race is a predominant factor or that at the very least, the court will defer to the lower court in terms of the finding of predominant factor. you know, erica, this is one big issue. another big issue is: how do we count people for the purposes of redistricting? do we use a total population of the measurement or eligible voters, commune i did that have younger populations are going to lose political power spencer
7:43 pm

laundry because they don't have water. we are doing our best to provide immediate assistance at the drought center. there is only so much we can do. >> donna johnson says she is one of the fortunate sfu. they could afford to drill a new deeper we will. that's come with a price. >> i also felt like a survivor's guilt, lie, oh, my god, i have a well. they don't. i felt very bad. but that's good. it's so we will work harder to help the other people. >> long-term solutions like connecting residents to public water systems to a maintaining center or drill a new well take time and money, two things east porterville doesn't have and as the elusive el nino leaves residents in the dust, hope is also running dry. jennifer london, al jazeera, east porterville, california. >> still ahead, more on the decision executives at sea world have made they hope will ressers the steady decline in the park's attendance. >> a young boy who lost his entire family in a fire bomb
