    I know many Independent registered voters, who lean to one party but not always. That's why they are registered Independent. Had the chair been registered Independent leaning Republican, would that be too "blatantly partisan" for Senator Melvin?

    The only hope is that the new final maps will be competitive. The voters do not want legislators responsible for drawing their own districts.

    Ideally, congressional and legislative district maps would reflect the results of the most recent census. The concept of one-person, one-vote dictates that districts should be roughly equal in population.

    On August 17th, former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor addressed the Independent Redistricting Commission. Justice O'Connor praised the volunteer members of the Independent Redistricting Commission for their civic service.

    Now over two months later, Governor Brewer and the GOP majority in the state senate cry "gross misconduct” to oust the IRC chair?? The rush by AZ Secretary of State Ken Bennett to call the November 1st special session is the epitome of a miscarriage of justice. The 21 AZ legislators responsible for the ousting should stand accused of “gross misconduct” for ignoring the voters’ will.
