  •  VRA involves racial discrimination (4+ / 0-)

    This is political vote dilution, which may be challenged as an Equal Protection violation.  

    •  And geographic, and frankly racial too, but in a (0+ / 0-)

      way that may not be VRA actionable.  After all, if the CDs themselves survive VRA, then the question is does VRA reach to EV weighting which takes the VRA-acceptable C/districting and makes it the vehicle for a discriminatory distriution (by dilution) of EVs?

      I have no idea if the VRA even reaches to the EC.
