Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
[Congressional Representatives] urge Supreme Court to leave redistricting to Congress
The Supreme Court hears oral arguments Tuesday in two partisan gerrymandering cases that could scramble congressional districts and change the way states redraw maps after the 2020 Census, marking the second consecutive year the justices will consider the issue.

the North Carolina and Maryland [congressional representatives] who benefited from that process urged the Supreme Court to stay out of it and leave any overhaul of the redistricting process to Congress[?!].

Are they mental?
To back up their point, they highlight scores of recent bills on partisan gerrymandering, including House Democrats' signature HR 1 legislation that would require states to create independent redistricting commissions, among other overhauls. That's not to say they support it; all of them voted against that bill in a House vote earlier this month.
Crackers have totally lost the plot.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
