Gerrymandering means repug wins in the house are illigitimate-when are we going to shout this out

why are the traitor republicans allowed to get away with this illegal voting practices and still whine about made up Democratic voting problems?

When are the ads going to run? When are we going to keep hammering them with this gross corruption of Democracy?

2. Dems had drawn lines in NY. Repubs sued. Repub

judge ruled the lines unfair and then republicans were allowed to draw the lines!

7. Can't, in VA. A nonpartisan commission determines the maps.

3. It goes both ways

Maryland is an example, some states get away with it, some dont. I would personally love to see a real group do it fair across the board. Maryland's offsets other smaller states, problem is it does not balance out, hence why I would love to see a balanced group do it every where.

5. I think it was redrawn by a nonpartisan commission. This was a

Referendum the voters approved in 2020. It was unfortunate for Dems, because prior to the referendum, they held the Govís office and both houses of the legislature and could have tipped the scales.

8. Except gerrymandering, for now, is legitimate in certain States.

Current SCOTUS will continue to allow it, especially in States where it gives the advantage to Republicans.
