  •  Right which is why I outlined scenario one (0+ / 0-)

    in the first paragraph. IIRC in Iowa the legislature can't draw the lines and can only pick among the three proposals if all three are voted down or something irrelevant like that. The main point though is that this is just legislation and it's possible that the conservative led supreme court would strike down the commission considering the state constitution specifically gives the power to the legislature and other state courts have done similar things to legislated commissions. When it comes down to it though, I just can't see Republicans passing it and McCrory signing it. They may be heartless and cruel in their policies, but they aren't idiots. They know damn well just how much gerrymandering helped them last year.
