In an extremely rare ruling, the United State Supreme Court issued a fair and constitutional ruling this week, claiming Michigan and Ohio gerrymandering would be, at least temporarily, blocked.
The Supreme Court temporarily blocked two decisions Friday requiring Republican-controlled legislatures in Michigan and Ohio to produce new legislative district lines ahead of the 2020 election.
There were no noted dissents from the Friday orders. The decision was not surprising, as the justices are currently deciding whether federal courts should even hear partisan gerrymandering disputes.
Both decisions set fast-moving schedules for the legislatures — the Michigan ruling gave the state until Aug. 1 to draw new lines, while the Ohio decision required a remedial plan by June 14. Friday’s order from the high court means that neither state will have to create new district maps in the short-term.
The main problem with the Democratic Party is they cannot win elections on their ideology or their policies, so they spend their time redrawing district lines for their benefit, enabling illegal immigration, and eliminating the Electoral College.
