It turns out Article I Section 5 of the Constitution gives Congress the power to establish the rules for fair election of its own members and refuse to seat a member whose position was won by violation of those rules. The rules that each house establishes for election of its members are not subject to judicial or executive branch oversight.Pursuant to this provision, each chamber could establish rules for fair elections including an end to voter suppression and gerrymandering. Each chamber could then refuse to seat candidates who benefited from these practices. And any such refusal would require only a majority vote (even in the Senate), would involve no action by the other chamber (or the President), and would be judicially unreviewable. https://www.democracydocket.com/2021/02/congresss-forgotten-...regards,Kris
