If the worst that happens is a judge rules it unconstitutional and the GOP ignore the judge, it'll keep happening.

People need to start going to prison for voter suppression and gerrymandering. That needs to be the democrats top priority. Start putting people in prison for 20+ years and this behavior will end.

Or, if that doesn't work, the democrats need to do it too. At leas that way, the SCOTUS might overturn it. As long as voter suppression and gerrymandering only benefit the GOP, I think the 5 conservative SCOTUS judges will rule it constitutional. If both parties do it, they may decide it is unfair and overturn it.
Uh. You do realize we'll need to pass a law against gerrymandering before we start throwing people in prison for it, right?
