    Sure they have and still do - to some extent - however the bulk of gerrymandering in the current climate is from GOP states where Democrats would hold roughly half the Congressional seats if the districts were drawn impartially.

    And that's why districts should be drawn by independent commissions.

    Although the Constitution specifies that a census be taken every ten years, does it specifically and literally ban doing additional ones in the interim?

    If it doesn't and the Dems takeover in 2020, can they do a redo?

    An analysis of the 2016 election showed that the GOP won 22 more House seats than expected based on the average vote share of congressional districts and that four times as many states with GOP led state legislatures were gerrymandered than Democratic ones.

    You’re right. No history of sexual abusers hiring women.

    About the same time the Braille Institute said they couldn't help you.

    Yet Democrats are in favor of ending gerrymandering.

    It's a probabilistic statement based on the evidence in the public sphere, no investigation agency necessary. You'd have to assign 0.00 probability of truth to, not one, but two different accusation of past sexual assault in order to conclude that the probability is zero, thus I conclude it is a non-zero probability. Even with only one accusation on the books the probability that he committed sexual assault is non-zero because nobody really knows what happened and you can't say with certainty either way. To do otherwise would likely mean you have a partisan bias in your assessment.
