State Issue 4 would stop party hacks from fixing voting districts to grab offices and will force politicians to compete for our votes, rather than just rigging districts in their own best interests.

In today’s WaPo (hat tip Hypo Speaking), Michael McDonald refutes the October 29th Rosenbaum Op-Ed, pointing out a quote taken out of context. The money quote, though is this:

No other advanced democracy permits legislators to draw districts, so the mischief we have seen with U.S. redistricting does not happen elsewhere. The Post should continue supporting redistricting reform to create a democracy that better serves its citizens.

Yes on 2-5.

Why RON is so important. Case 2.

Update: When I find my notes I will expand upon a conversation I had with AIRC Chairman Steve Lynn and he basically confirmed what McDonald said in his refutation of the Rosebaum Op-Ed.
