Partisan Gerrymandering: Courts Should Keep Out of the Debate

Hans A. Von Spakovsky and Michael Watson, National Review

The allocation of representatives in a state legislature or in the U.S. House of Representatives is a fundamental political question that cannot be resolved without political considerations.

Claims that this or that system for drawing the boundary lines of state and congressional districts is “nonpolitical” are a myth.
