"Redistricting is one of the purest actions a legislative body can take."
- John Engler (former Gov, R-MI)
"You can't take politics out of politics, and there is nothing more political than redistricting,"
- Senator John Cornyn (R-TX)
"[Democrats] get to rip off the public in the states where they control and protect their incumbents, and [Republicans] get to rip off the public in the states [where they] control and protect [their] incumbents, so the public gets ripped off in both circumstances. In the long run, there's a downward spiral of isolation."
- Newt Gingrich (Former House Speaker R-GA)
