Dallas County Commissioner Maurine Dickey's angry outburst at Tuesday's meeting was sparked by late changes to the redistricting lines.

Dickey became upset when three Democrats on the five-member court made a late change for a new Democrat-leaning district to come up for election next year instead of 2014. Dickey said she wasn't told about the change.

After her outburst, she left the meeting and didn't vote on the plan to redraw commissioner district lines based on the 2010 census.
