Supreme Court today re-affirmed a key principle of our representative system upheld at every lower level of the court system – that people who hold elected office are chosen by and represent the interests of ALL the people who live in their districts, regardless of whether they were active voters, or supportive of an individual candidate’s or party’s agenda and philosophy.
“If voting is a civic sacrament, then the principle of “one person, one vote” is a civic commandment enshrined in our Constitution. Today, the Court unanimously affirmed that principle.

These are the kinds of policies we'd expect in 1960, not 2016 and beyond.
