Time for Maryland to follow Arizona
With the Supreme Court ruling upholding Arizona having a non partisan commission draw its election districts Maryland should now show itself to be a good government state and follow Arizona's lead. We are one of the most gerrymandered states in the country.
For many of us in Columbia this our Congressional district represented by John Sarbanes. It has been called a "praying mantas" district because of its shape. Notice how thin lines are drawn between the separate parts of district. How could there be any logic in the drawing of the district other than to insure a safe Congressional district for a Democrat. And I say that as a Democrat who likes Sarbanes representing me in Congress.
If the Republicans in Maryland are looking for a cause that many Democrats would support here is one good government cause for consideration.
