Wiki of the day, December 29,2012: Gerrymandering

The Article: Gerrymandering

INTERESTING FACT: Democrats won more of the popular vote in the 2012 House elections.

I thought this was fitting as I just cannot believe what has been done with the US House of Representatives.  Thanks to crafty redistricting it is not representative at all, and it is supposed to be the more representative body.

I will probably get into the details more some day but just take a peek at this article (WP blog entry) for some analysis.  It is over a month old now, and I assure you the current data proves this out.  I saw a more in-depth video article on this, and I was shocked.

Hopefully people will not stand for this!
