re: the redistricting beat goes on... and on...
The redistricting issue makes its appearance before the courts again.
Why don't Texans just close down the State Legislature since members can't do the jobs they were hired/voted-in to do? Legislators can't pass the time of day, much less anything else.
Isn't it clear by now that legislators should NOT determine redistricting maps and neither should the courts!
It would be better for everyone if maps were drawn up by a private non-partisan independent company, which would NOT be able to contribute campaign financing, gifts or perks to lawmakers... and vice versa!!!
