Most voters lose with gerrymandering

October 8, 2010

Albert Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. For three decades, we’ve seen redistricting initiatives appear on the California ballot, and, except for in 2008, they have all failed. Reformers have struggled with the burden of trying to pitch a complex “inside baseball” issue that is loved by political junkies but very hard to explain simply to the general public. This is especially true in the current election cycle, with the unprecedented amount of political clutter filling California’s airwaves. [Orange County Register]
