Gee, do you think that one of the most liberal newspapers in the entire country might see it that way, Dragonlady? Republicans and Democrats have gerrymandered districts for a long time. It's another way that politicians secure their offices. Do you think a Democrat in a predominantly Republican State MINDS having their district gerrymandered so that it has almost ALL Democratic voters in it? All that means is there isn't a chance in hell of them every losing a race!My comment isn't anywhere near as ignorant as yours. Republicans have raised gerrymandering to an art form. Every one of the most gerrymandered districts in the USA is a Republican district in a Republican state.
The democrats have been cheating on redistributing for decades. That’s how they came to control California. They even managed to pass state laws that have democrats running against other democrats rather than republicans or independents.Well, one involves persuasion - campaigning. That's how politics is supposed to work.
The other is changing the rules (redrawing boundaries) to favor partisan interests.
