    There were plenty of diaries here during the redistricting following the 2010 census, but I think one big difficulty is identifying the kind of gerrymandering being done.  Specifically, who benefits disproportionately by the district topology? Politicians have easy access to data that allows them to press their thumbs down on the scales, and get away with it, especially since the minority representation issue actually helps Republicans, IMO.

    Sorry, but I 'm not even sure how to start.
