Tanner is all upset that Republicans could re draw his Congressional district for the first time. It seems some people only get righteous when it is their job that they got through a slanted political system is suddenly put in jeopardy because political winds change.
Where was the urgency when he was in the state legislature? Did Tanner send in articles to the paper then? Did Tanner vote against his district being drawn for him? Did he vote against Republicans being lumped together in one district? Did he think districts should be drawn by a non biased system or that the system was not fair then?
Currently their are computer systems available that will re draw district lines based on a mathematical formulas. Not partisanship. If he were to push that he would have some small sliver of newly found credibility. Though mentioned in his article, he does not want or advocate going to a non biased computer system at all. He just wants to get it to DC where he can have his friends redraw it for him.
Funny how that works.
