This is part of Exhibit 12 as prepared by the redistricting challengers shows the Broward-based state Senate district that was used by map drawers to pack Democrats into a black-majority district in an effort to make the adjacent districts less competitive. 
The first map, ‘senatecomm’ was produced by Senate staff. The second map ‘mcarvin – draft_s01’ was sent to the Senate’s redistricting lawyer, Michael Carvin, and identified in emails from political operatives as ‘the plan’ a month before it was presented to senators or made public. 
Maps, ‘senate7’ and ‘senate9’ were draft maps also produced by the Senate in a way that retained the district that had been promoted by the operatives. Testimony indicated that the staff director of the Senate Reapportionment Committee, John Guthrie, acknowledged there must have been a breach in the Senate that allowed maps to go from his office to political operatives.
