Someone correct me if I'm wrong

Democrats picked up seats in states that have independent commissions that oversee the creation of congressional districts like Florida and Arizona

I know that we picked up seats in Illinois and Maryland that don't have these commissions but that's not here nor there

1. The pick ups in MD and IL just prove

that when Democrats have control of the statehouses, they often gerrymander to their advantage, just as Republicans do when they can.

Fair game on both sides.

2. The Democratic state legislature controlled the redistricting in Illinois.

Three Republicans from the Chicago area (including teabagger Joe Walsh) got the boot.
