On Sept. 23, Speaker Robin Vos and Majority Leader Devin LeMahieu introduced a resolution that makes clear they want to rig the maps again the upcoming redistricting.
In Assembly Joint Resolution 80, they spelled out their criteria for drawing the maps. One of those emphasized their intent to “retain as much as possible the core of existing districts.”
And there’s the rub, because the existing districts are grotesquely rigged. That’s what a group of Democratic plaintiffs charged in the Whitford case, demonstrating that the gerrymander was one of the worst in modern American history.
