Another nice way for the party in the White House to consolidate power. A Trump justice department would just love to ignore heavily gerrymandered districts in Republican states while attacking those in Democratic states.

For the record, gerrymandering is killing democracy when either party does it, but given that 19 states have their districts drawn by Republicans, and only 7 states have districts drawn by Democrats, you can see who this ruling would favor.

Ohio is one of those terribly gerrymandered states to the old fucktwats ruining the state. The map was deemed unlawful and after other bad maps and lots of delays, they were allowed to use this map in the last election. No fix in sight yet and it's almost 2024.
