Justice Stephen Breyer Wishes Supreme Court Could Fight Gerrymandering

As there are battles here in Virginia and across the country over redistricting, I thought it was worth looking at some comments that Justice Stephen Breyer made last year when he was on C-Span discussing his book, Making Our Democracy Work: A Judge’s View. When asked if there was a case he would like to revisit, Breyer says he would like to take on gerrymandering. He went on to say that we need fair districts in order for our democracy to function fully and that the current system causes some people to be jaded because certain districts are drawn to protect one party or the other.
