This piece is a couple of weeks old, but I think it’s important to pay attention to.

In Republican-controlled states where they can get away with it, the urban areas are split up through gerrymandering to basically disenfranchise the city dwellers. Nashville is a prime example.

You’re talking about one of the largest metro areas of the country and because of gerrymandering, its congressional representation is gone. It’s not democracy.

@TonyStark Is there anything Republicans can't screw up when they are plotting disenfranchising Democrats?
