Ohio legislature approvesnew congressional map
COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohiostate lawmakers approved thestate’s new congressional bound-aries on Wednesday, swiftlysending to Gov. John Kasich amap that Democrats and voteradvocates said favors rulingRepublicans.Asked by reporters after anenergy summit session, Kasichsaid he would sign it, adding, “Itrust the leaders.”The map was endorsed bya Senate committee in the earlyafternoon Wednesday beforebeing approved by the full Senate24-7. Only two Democrats crossedthe aisle in support of the map.“Is it the best map? No,”said Sen. Charleta Tavares, aColumbus Democrat. She saidshe was supporting the map,however, because it created adistrict designed to elect a blackU.S. representative, as wellas another district containingenough minorities to allow themto sway an election.The House approved themap last week on a 56-36 vote,with three Democrats and fiveRepublicans crossing party lines.The map eliminated two of Ohio’s 18 congressional seats bysqueezing six sitting members of Congress into three districts, set-ting up potential primary face-offs between Republicans MikeTurner and Steve Austria in south-ern Ohio and Democrats DennisKucinich and Marcy Kaptur fora district along Lake Erie. It alsoplaces Democratic U.S. Rep.Betty Sutton into the district of Republican Jim Renacci.A new Democratic-leaningdistrict contains most of Columbus and Franklin County,with the exception of the OhioStatehouse. An amendment byTavares to keep the Statehousein that district was rejected alongparty lines.The map has come underfire for what critics say is cre-ative cartography. The new 9thCongressional District stretchesfrom Toledo to Cleveland alongthe banks of Lake Erie, and thenew 15th District is an elongatedbackward “C” shape that stretch-es over 800 miles and touchesparts of 13 counties.Earlier Wednesday, theSenate Government Oversightand Reform Committee added$2.75 million to the map billto help county election boardsimplement the new map. Underthe Ohio Constitution, bills thatmake appropriations are not sub- ject to the typical 90-day wait-ing period before they becomeeffective and they are protectedfrom repeal attempts by voters— something Ohio DemocraticParty Chairman Chris Redfernhas threatened.Sen. Keith Faber, the commit-tee’s chairman, said the money isnecessary to aid boards that willcontend with a November elec-tion, a new congressional mapand signature counting for a pos-sible repeal of Ohio’s new elec-tions overhaul.“What we have here areamendments which are littlemore than a parliamentary trick,”Sandusky Democrat Rep. DennisMurray said of the decision toadd the money to the measure.The deadline for congressio-nal candidates to file is Dec. 7,so a map must be completed bythen. Ohio law states that anybill must wait 90 days from pas-sage to go into effect, with a fewexceptions, including measuresthat appropriate money. The$2.75 million in the congressio-nal map bill would mean that thenew lines go into effect immedi-ately after Kasich signs it.
Georgia executes Davis;supporters claim injustice
By GREG BLUESTEINThe Associated Press
JACKSON, Ga. — Strappedto a gurney in Georgia’s deathchamber, Troy Davis lifted hishead and declared one last timethat he did not kill police offi-cer Mark MacPhail. Just a fewfeet away behind a glass win-dow, MacPhail’s son and brotherwatched in silence.Outside the prison, a crowdof more than 500 demonstratorscried, hugged, prayed and heldcandles. They represented hun-dreds of thousands of supportersworldwide who took up the anti-death penalty cause as Davis’final days ticked away.“I am innocent,” Davis saidmoments before he was executedWednesday night. “All I can ask... is that you look deeper into thiscase so that you really can finallysee the truth. I ask my familyand friends to continue to fightthis fight.”Prosecutors and MacPhail’sfamily said justice had finallybeen served.“I’m kind of numb. I can’tbelieve that it’s really happened,”MacPhail’s mother, AnnelieseMacPhail, said in a telephoneinterview from her home inColumbus, Ga. “All the feelingsof relief and peace I’ve beenwaiting for all these years, theywill come later. I certainly dowant some peace.”She dismissed Davis’ claimsof innocence.“He’s been telling himself that for 22 years. You know howit is, he can talk himself into any-thing,” she added.Davis was scheduled to dieat 7 p.m., but the hour cameand went as the U.S. SupremeCourt apparently weighed thecase. More than three hours later,the high court said it wouldn’tintervene. The justices did notcomment on their order rejectingDavis’ request for a stay.Hundreds of thousands of people signed petitions on Davis’behalf and he had prominent sup-porters. His attorneys said sevenof nine key witnesses against himdisputed all or parts of their testi-mony, but state and federal judg-es repeatedly ruled against him— three times on Wednesdayalone.Officer MacPhail’s widow,Joan MacPhail-Harris, said itwas “a time for healing for allfamilies.”Davis’ supporters stagedvigils in the U.S. and Europe,declaring “I am Troy Davis” onsigns, T-shirts and the Internet.President Barack Obama deflect-ed calls for him to get involved.As many as 700 demonstra-tors gathered outside the prisonas a few dozen riot police stoodwatch, but the crowd thinned asthe night wore on and the out-come became clear.Davis’ execution had beenhalted three times since 2007.The U.S. Supreme Court even
“I am innocent.All I can ask ...is that you lookdeeper into thiscase so that youreally can finallysee the truth. Iask my family andfriends to continueto fight this fight.”

(Continued from page 1)
gave Davis an unusual opportunityto prove his innocence in a lowercourt last year. While the nation’stop court didn’t hear the case, theydid set a tough standard for Davisto exonerate himself, ruling that hisattorneys must “clearly establish”Davis’ innocence — a higher barto meet than prosecutors havingto prove guilt. After the hearing, alower court judge ruled in prosecu-tors’ favor, and the justices didn’ttake up the case.Members of Davis’ family whowitnessed the execution left with-out talking to reporters.Davis was convicted in 1991 of killing MacPhail, who was work-ing as a security guard at the time.MacPhail rushed to the aid of ahomeless man who prosecutorssaid Davis was bashing with ahandgun after asking him for abeer. Prosecutors said Davis hada smirk on his face as he shot theofficer to death in a Burger Kingparking lot in Savannah.No gun was ever found, butprosecutors say shell casings werelinked to an earlier shooting forwhich Davis was convicted.Witnesses placed Davis at thecrime scene and identified him asthe shooter, but several of themhave recanted their accounts andsome jurors have said they’vechanged their minds about his guilt.Others have claimed a man whowas with Davis that night has toldpeople he actually shot the officer.
