Slaying the gerrymander?

Former Gov. Jim Martin weighs in on "the Justus plan", an idea to overcome the illegitimate gerrymandered elections that gave right-wing nut jobs super-majorities in Raleigh with about half of the popular vote.

Could it work? Maybe. But it would take significant voter engagement and turnout, and that's been chronically difficult.

But if something isn't done soon, the GOP's efforts to further dilute and ultimately deny the votes of those who don't vote for them will be effective.
