The courts and gerrymandering
This Virginia Federal Court struck down the regressive gerrymandering which strongly favors GOP candidates and incumbents. In the last election such gerrymandering in VA gave the GOP an 8 to 3 advantage in the congressional delegation, despite the overall vote tally favoring the GOP by less than 2%. Not to worry though, since the Supreme Corp just rejected an appeal about gerrymandering in South Carolina, so if this case is appealed to the Supremes it will be overturned.
