Supreme Court blocks order to redraw North Carolina congressional map. Yet more winning by the GOP.

As long as politicians draw up the district maps, politics will always be their first concern no matter what SCOTUS might have to say.

“an unconstitutional partisan gerrymander”
Translation from Newspeak — “It doesn’t do anything for Democrats.”
