This is literally the most egregious example of gerrymandering in modern history.
I would guess that's probably true for all of American history, as well, but I only went back a few decades.
The provides specific examples and times please. Did you know some incumbents lost in their gerrymandered districts too.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
