109. Lollipop shaped districts are nothing. We have districts that resemble snakes.
I kid you not. Twisting and winding half way across the state.

The US Voting Rights Act protects against discriminatory redistricting, such as was found to have been done in one district in Texas. However, other than that it's impossible to get any US entity to touch a tool which has been used since the 1700's to gain, or hold, political leverage. They simply refuse to give up such a longstanding tradition of manipulative corruption.
