  •  Not a question of established procedures (0+ / 0-)

    Because you can simply passed a new law setting up new procedures.  You can simply pass a law saying the old three-member commission is repealed, and, oh by the way, here are your new Congressional districts.

      but keep your electoral diarrhea districts to yourself, guys.

      Washington State's system works. It produces compact competitive districts. Not to mention it was a constitutional amendment passed by initiative. It'd be electoral suicide for anyone to mess with it. Why break something that works exactly the way it should?

      And in any case, we'd be hard pressed to improve upon the current circumstances. The GOP only holds 3 seats and we have a very good chance of taking one of those this year. As for the other two seats, there really isn't a better better spot for two GOP seats they'll (likely) hold for the near future without fatally weakening Democratic strength in the 2nd, 3rd and 8th.
