SCOTUS takes up gerrymandering

Hosted by

The US Supreme Court has agreed to hear a challenge to legislative gerrymandering in Wisconsin. The argument is that district boundaries have been drawn by Republicans to give them more seats than they deserve. Eric McGhee, research fellow at the Public Policy Institute of California, traces the history of gerrymandering and a case that could change common practice going back almost to the beginning of political parties.
