Supreme Court Says Constitution Does Not Bar Partisan Gerrymandering

The court has ruled that racial gerrymanders can violate the Constitution, but it has struggled with voting maps warped by politics.
There was a time when Democrats really liked partisan gerrymandering.  It was back when they controlled most statehouses.  Before Republicans eventually took control of the Texas legislature Democrat House districts protected incumbent Democrats despite the fact that Republicans were winning all statewide elections.  When Republicans took control all of a sudden Democrats were concerned about "partisan" gerrymandering.  They whined even though Republicans like Will Hurd were winning Districts specifically drawn for Democrats.
