The Virginian-Pilot has put up some Google maps of the proposed Senate districts (amazing what can be done when you’re not relying on Microsoft technology) and wow, are they absolutely incredible. Not one of the districts in Northern Virginia approach anything resembling sanity — each one of them is a long, snaking mess that is so baldly gerrymandered the boldness of them is utterly stunning. Some of these more resemble a maze or pieces to a very difficult puzzle rather than legislative districts.
If the House or Governor approve this disaster I am not going to be happy. At all. These proposed districts are a bold insult to democracy and fairness and if we are forced to litigate against them as citizens because our legislators and governor failed us, a lot of people are going to be very upset.
