Partisan Gerrymandering Upheld by Supreme Court

Political gerrymandering not an issue for the courts, SCOTUS rules 5-4.

A green light for election corruption.

Partisan gerrymandering is A-OK, ruled the Supreme Court today. Or to interpret the ruling more charitably, the Supreme Court has decided that it's a matter for the states to decide.

By a 5 to 4 vote, in a decision by Justice Roberts, the Supreme Court today said it cannot decide the question of partisan gerrymandering in federal courts.

SCOTUS will not strike down the gerrymandering in North Carolina and Maryland.
