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.
Before you read the “Outside The Lines” report, consider this:
Taping the opposing team’s sideline still isn’t banned; only taping the opposing team from the sideline is illegal.
Also remember this:
Taping the opposing team from the sideline wasn’t banned until 2006, yet the report cites examples as far back as 2000. ~NESN
