My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


SCOTUS Affirms Legislatures' Rights To Draw Districts

The decision is here.

. . . because appellants (read: Democrats) have established no legally impermissible use of political classifications, they state no claim on which relief may be granted as to their contention that Texas' statewide redistricting is an unconstitutional political gerrymander.

Moreover, the Court held that legislatures can redraw districts as often as they want, not just once every ten years in conjunction with the census.

I wonder if that might open the door to re-assessing the Colorado redistricting from 2002? And it certainly gives a good reason to work hard to take back the state legislature this time around.
