Over the last couple of months, Republicans and Democrats have been working together on a bipartisan joint select committee on redistricting, trying to come up with a new map that the Legislature can pass, instead of the courts, where it has been decided for the last 30 years.  

Things were proceeding well, despite Sal Pace's attempt to steal some spotlight, until today. Today, Republicans and Democrats were supposed to turn in their maps so negotiations could be begin.  

The Republican maps are in. The Democrat maps are not.  

Rumor is that the Democrat third party groups used different software than the General Assembly is using and can't figure out how to get their software packages to talk to each other.  

So the shady third party tech monkeys are holding this whole process up.

Nice going, tech monkeys.
