A state court ruled the gerrymander by Michigan's GOP controlled legislature on the last go around was of "historic proportions".Seems other GOP controlled states are out to exceed the standard Michigan set.New congressional maps constitute 'brazen attack' on voters of color: Report"Republican map drawers, especially in the South, haven’t just declined to create any new electoral opportunities for these fast-growing communities; in many instances they have dismantled existing districts where communities of color won power or were on the verge of doing so. This brazen attack is unprecedented in scale," according to the report, which sees that effort as undermining the political power of Black, Latino, Asian American and Native American communities"In state after state, Republicans are claiming that they are drawing maps on a 'race-blind' basis and then defending the resulting racially discriminatory maps on the basis of partisanship, cynically exploiting the loophole left when the Supreme Court declared that federal courts were off-limits to constitutional challenges to partisan gerrymandering," the report said. "If courts are not willing to carefully probe the intersection of race and politics, the ruse may just succeed."https://currently.att.yahoo.com/news/congressional-maps-cons...Steve
