After some shamelessly partisan redistricting left us with a Congressional map so wonky that it was declared the nation’s greatest gerrymander a couple years back, it’s about time that we see some legislation that addresses the issue. And according to Marylander Reporter, three such bills have been introduced in the state Senate.
Each in its own way, the bills attempt wrest control of the process away from the governor and increase transparency and public involvement.
All political corruption is ugly, but corruption that threatens the validity of the electoral process should be eradicated first. So please, lawmakers, pass one of the freaking bills.
