Honest assessment of the Gerrymandering issue

Thanks to Fox News for publishing my op-ed.  The main-streamers don’t want to hear this.  But there is a clear, easy solution to the gerrymandering problem.

It would take care of 99% of the problems we now face with blowout or uncompetitive elections, unbeatable incumbents, minority voters with no choice, poor turnout, etc..  But, the so-called  reformers are not interested.  Incumbents don’t want competitive elections.  Consultants and litigants won’t profit from solving the gerrymandering problem.  They profit from managing but never quite solving it.  So, all involved–incumbents, litigants, consultants, reformers, protect the single-member district instead of militating to get rid of it.
