The GOP gerrymandered to a much greater degree than anything the Democrats ever did. That is the premise of my comments. Comparing one to the other is a false equivalency. It might well be illegal.

RE: NC Map Comparison
That's just not accurate. If the dems could have configured the maps to get a 9-3 or 10-3 advantage they would have. The reason they didn't is because the voters just were not there

To deny that is just being partisan

You want me to agree with your opinion or else I am being partisan. I can just as easily say that I'm correct and if you don't agree with me you are being partisan. The truth is we are just taking facts and forming differing opinions based on them.

Republicans didn't whine about how unfair it was that Democrats gerrymandered. They just challenged them in court when they could. Democrats are hypocrites and ignore that they have been the biggest beneficiaries of gerrymandering for decades.

Now you can look at the facts on North Carolina and come up with different conclusions about which was worse, but they both do the same thing.
