What gerrymandering?

Whenever anyone expresses some concern that maybe we ought to make sure there isn't any voter fraud and, perhaps, we should re-examine the way districts are composed there is much hue and cry and rending of garments about racism and Jim Crow and on and on.

I present to you the 4th District of Illinois.

Proponents will tell you this is so that certain groups are "represented". This is nonsense on stilts. This district is to ensure they can create a representative that will vote properly and not go along with the will of the people. Well the will of the wrong people. You know, the ones who think maybe government isn't the answer to everything.

That's one messed up district. Nothing fishy there..

And yet idiot liberals (such as my sister) go on and on about how voter fraud is "fictional" and that it's "racist" against minorities.
