  •  Remember the Texas clusterf*ck? (6+ / 0-)

    Texas legislature draws up illegal map, which gets invalidated.  I can't remember, but I think it went up to the Supreme Court, which affirmed the trial court's ruling.  Then Texas appoints a 3-judge panel to draw the districts.  That map is challenged by state Republicans.  The map is upheld at the District Court and the Court of Appeals and gets appealed to the Supreme Court.  Scalia does what he does, and sends the map back to the 3-judge panel to be redrawn.  I don't know where it stands now, but the new map was not in place for the election last fall.
