Republicans continue to seek redistricting edge

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court fixed one of the symptoms of gerrymandering when it tossed out the state's Congressional districts and replaced it with one of their own.

But they did not cure the disease.

And it's clear that Republicans in Harrisburg - who just happen to control both the House and Senate - and not exactly in the mood to give up this powerful perk.

Yesterday they rolled out an amendment to legislation that would get this crucial process of drawing the maps out of the hands of politicians and make it the job of an independent, bipartisan commission.

Instead, the GOP plan would keep control exactly where it should not be - in the hands of politicians.

You're stunned, I know.

We explain it on our editorial page.
