On Why Redistricting should not be done by politicians

Illinois Dems eye sweeping gains with new map - Alex Isenstadt -
"In an astonishing display of line-drawing power, Democrats unveiled a redistricting proposal Friday that forces at least five Republicans into match-ups with other incumbents and thrusts others into solidly Democratic districts. While GOP officials said they were scrambling to determine the damage the potential lines would have, they acknowledged that the new map would take a hammer to the state’s Republican delegation."

This kind of horseshit is just as wrong when Democrats do it as when Republicans do it.
